This is one of my wife's favorite spots for breakfast or lunch. I had gone there with her about six years back, so it was nice to return. We each had Baked Blueberry French Toast. You order and pay at the counter, then take a seat while waiting for a server to bring your food. I would have liked a... More

I wish we had been able to have a meal here because I know it would have been good. I was greeted and helped by a wonderful, cheery gal who was conversational and sweet. She helped me select several gluten free items which were outstanding, along with some delicious, and I do mean delicious....coffee. There are so many choices! I... More

Haven is quite popular with locals and tourists, and the food—though not the latte—is pretty good. Patrons are required to place and pay for orders at the cash register before sitting at a table, to which orders are subsequently delivered. The cashier couldn't have been less welcoming or more off-putting; no eye contact, totally perfunctory, and cold as ice. Perhaps... More

This felt like it was transplanted from a bigger city. Great variety, vegetarian options and fresh produce. I had a tasty curry that was on the species list. Kids had the large and generous burgers. Staff are friendly and helpful. They also serve good espresso coffee.

Fresh food and big portions made this a very satisfying experience. The omelets used a lot of local ingredients and had very interesting combinations

Not only was the salads awesome, the soups were thick and rich (like they were freshly pureed) and we had a real double espresso (the european way). Tons of happy guests.

Popular cafe with very efficient service. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. Kale salad with pepitas and grapefruit was a particulary favorite.

The food is definitely pricy and usually takes a long time to make it to the table but it is SO GOOD! Try the Earl Grey vanilla latte to hold you over. Every time I've visited its been busy and cramped so I would not recommend for people who have trouble navigating between tables and chairs.

This place was such a treat after a long rainy driving day. We popped by and were lucky to score a table in the busy crowd. They have a delicious variety of baked goods - try the dirt bomb! Yummy!
