Delicious and relaxing meal on the enclosed porch. The salmon was excellently prepared in a lobster broth.

Stopped in late for dinner, remember Julian rolls up the streets at 8PM. So we were the last diners in the restaurant but everyone was very nice. Had a great piece of Salmon and the Melted Brie Appetizer is a meal in itself. Highly recommend.

Stopped to eat early dinner on 07/06/2017. Cute small place; was able to sit by the window. Dinner was fantastic and their pie ala mode was terrific. Will make sure to visit next time.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a leisurely drive in the California "countryside." It is a quaint cafe decorated with local flavor and antiques-a-plenty. The soups were delicious and seemed homemade and fresh, accompanied by bread that was worth the calories!...More
