What a cute, quaint cafe..but they are busy. We sat at the bar and had a great time with a very entertaining bartender. Bottomless mimosas are just the ticket and the selection of flavors is perfect. Had the Berry Cheese sandwich and it was wonderful. Could have had a little more jalapenos but just perfect for brunch. Veggie confetti side... More

With a group in town for the Florida LGBTA Winter Caucus. Came here for the kick-off social. There was a group of 15 of us. I had the Quinoa Power Salad with shrimp at 450 calories. Everyone enjoyed their food. A bit challenging for large groups though..we were squeezed in. And because we were a large group and it was... More

You really need to go on line and check out their menu ahead of time, because it may take a while to choose. And the bakery (Oh My!). They also have party rooms available for special occasions. This is one of the best eateries in Lakeland.

The service was superb! The Buffalo cauliflower delicious. The pan seared scallops and P3 were outstanding as was the polenta they were served on. It was so good we are going back tomorrow for brunch.

All eight of us enjoyed our meals. There was not a complaint among us. My only thing was the fried hash dish was really sliced meat, large potatoes fried together... not what I was expecting... and frankly , not very good.... the gravy and biscuits were good. We will definitely go back.. and I didn't think it over priced. The... More

Not bad but nothing that wows me. Service was a tad slow and food was good but expensive. I would probably look elsewhere next time.

Breakfast, Lunch Or Dinner, Especially Dinner, Outrageous Pricing. Small Portions. Average Food At Best. Some of the dishes are outright terrible tasting, Which They think are unique. DO NOT BRING YOUR FAMILY OR GROUPS TO THIS PLACE. ITS CHEAPER AT FIND RESTAURANT. Save your time and money.
