We're very sorry to report that our last visit with another couple was very exasperating when it comes to good service. Our waitress was bubbly, blonde curly hair and totally unattentive. We had to take our coffee cups to the bar twice in order to...More

Wonderful American food. Homemade muffins, etc.....I buy their homemade jam to take home. The only thing is sometimes there is a long wait. Tables no booths. Thet do have a counter you can sit at. Friendly staff. Best in town!

You'll love the atmosphere and food/drinks at this cafe. Sunday brunch is packed but worth the wait. They have a great selection of brunch and lunch items and the food is very good. Make sure and try the Mamosa's also...they are great.

Worth the line too eat here. Food options were great for lunch or breakfast. Vegan options for most dishes and juices with veggies and fruits. Ate here 3 out of 4 days - it was that good.
