I tried the frittata with artichoke, mushroom, and bacon...so yummy. It's a fun little cafe with anice outdoor area. It's a long way from anywhere, but worth the trip.

Stopped by for a late lunch. Excellent large hamburger sandwich with fine bread and beef from a local ranch. Service was fine. They even have a small store in front with a large variety of items. We picked up coffee beans.

Eclectic little spot has great character. Most importantly it offers wonderful food. Chicken tortilla soup was very flavourful, without being too spicy. Fantastic sandwiches with the crusts cut off! Delightful! Wonderful desserts if you happen to have any room left.
