Family owned and still evolving. Drop in for a cup of Joe or order and light lunch. Homemade soup is great and we can't leave out the bake goods. Yum. A bit of a surprise they are licenced and open evenings for a little brew. Very central location.

Coffee was good. Soup and salad were average. What surprised me was food server on plastic or Styrofoam. At $20. Food should have been in ceramic. And baked goods uncovered on the counter way to close to where I stood to pay. One cough, sneeze or stay hair. Don't want to think about it.

Delicious home made food; great variety of beverages and deserts. Always fast and friendly service. Small and cozy - wish I could go more often. I have a been there about half a dozen times now and have never been disappointed!

I stopped by here one evening just to see what it was like. I wasn't really hungry, but noticed they offered craft beers. I was presently surprised by the variety they had. Also, there was someone playing an acoustic guitar who was very talented. Not a big place but highly recommended.

This little place features daily specials and wonderful snacks like muffins and squares. They serve coffee, tea, higher quality sodas, and lots of other drink favorites. Retro decorating and cozy café seating as well as bar stool window views. Friendly, clean, and a nice place to meet for coffee.

Lovely little deli, friendly staff and delicious offering. I can speak only for the bacon potato salad, but it was very nice. Cozy little space doesn't have room for large groups - seats about 35? I would return eagerly.

Went in with a colleague who highly recommended the place. I love the that they have 6 options for the meal selection. The food was great and the cookie was a great way to top it off. You can eat at the companion store across the street. Seriously, try their specialty root beer!
