My coworkers and I ordered several different things from this restaurant during lunch. I had the chicken salad croissant sandwich and it was absolutely fabulous. The zucchini bread is to die for. There is no complaints.

Absolutely scrumptious! They offer gluten-free options, which won me over. The harvest salad was amazing and the zucchini bread the best I’ve ever had. Too bad we were just passing through. Otherwise I’d be here all the time!

the broccoli mushroom quiche is my favorite - I have never found a better, more creamy, delicious quiche anywhere! :)

This quaint eatery is nestled inside an old restored house and provides a very cool environment for lunch or brunch. The chicken salad is amazing. Always. The peace tea is also great. The zucchini bread is made of straight up crack. Don't miss it!
