We arrived for Sunday brunch and we were a little intimidated by how many cars were in the parking lot. Because it was raining their patio was closed so the place was packed. To our surprise we only had to wait 5 mintues for a table. The dining room is tiny but charming and brightly colored. Our server was super... More

This is just a great place. Well thought out menu, wonderful food, funky ambiance and attentive service. They also have an impressive selection of gourmet packaged foods, cakes and pies. And just try to leave without taking a whole pie home with you.

Have had breakfast here a number of times and always get the build your own Frittata. So delicious. They have converted an old building to a unique and charming café with a secluded patio out back. Lunches are just as good and don't forget to leave room for their pies and desserts. Never had a bad meal.

Chef David never disappoints, and the waiter Jimmy is a delight! My favorite is the Thai chicken salad.

The food in this place does not disappoint . The servers are lacking professionalism at times. They are young women who seem to forget you at times. They disappear for extended periods. Getting a second cup of coffee is a chore and creme is dispensed like gold. Food is a must try but patience is needed with the young inexperienced... More

The staff was great and everyone in our group of 8 enjoyed the food. They even had options for our vegan!

Stopped by in late December just before the snow hit Oracle. Wasn't sure what to expect but the food and service was amazing - truly someone's labour of love. Quality of food shines from moment you walk through the little shop and it was hard to choose from the delicious array of dishes on the menu. Good job.

This is a house turned into a restaurant, market and bakery. It is a bit of a drive north of Oro Valley but well worth a Sunday drive in the countryside. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and an occasional special event dinner (e.g., Dinner with Dave). We had an enjoyable breakfast. They made their own breads but no whole wheat.
