Really enjoyed my coffee here. It is hard to find good coffee. Sit at the counter and enjoy. Also a great vibe in this small place.

This is a small cafe located on MLK 9th St. There is some off street parking which is nice. Food is delicious. Breakfast sandwich served anytime is a nice change. Soup of the day, 1/2 sandwich and iced flavored coffee at a great price was a great lunch. Skip the chain restaurants and give this place a try, you will... More

The rule of thumb @ Banyan is simply," don't try to do too much". And they don't and it works very well! Spledidly simple menu for both breakfast and lunch, same for the drink menu. Outside patio provides room to stretch out and enjoy the warm weather. I had the Breakfast Burrito which was large enough for sharing, it comes... More

This place is great. The Spinach and Egg sandwich is amazing. Good attitude from staff and relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again.

I love this place! It is small but it has a great atmosphere and excellent food. The scones are made fresh daily and are creative and fun flavor and my favorite coffee is the mocha. They have great breakfast burritos too! Make sure you check their hours though...they are only open breakfast and lunch.

This place has some of the best coffee in the area (the Americano is great!) They also have a small breakfast menu and we love to get there early on Sunday to have a bacon, egg and cheese and scone (baked fresh - different varieties every day). They definitely get busy as the morning progresses - but it's worth it!

We had breakfast twice here while on vacation and were pleasantly surprised by our visits. The food was excellent, the bacon in particular was incredible. Our server was attentive and friendly.

Ive driven pass this place on so many occasions thinking, what a cute place. I finally met friends here for breakfast. What a lovely place and to top it off breakfast was delish. My friend ordered scones and gravy and I was told she could swim in the gravy. I had the grits. It was a bowl of heaven for... More

Cuban breakfast sandwich was a good deal and food was very good. Services was also excellent. Noise level is very loud at time and was unable to hear across the table for conversation. Cool coffee shop.
