Perfect way to start the day! Food was tasty, good variety, and delicious coffee - worth the wait for a table. We had plenty of time to relax and savor the flavors of the meals. Salmon sandwich and salmon omelette and mushroom omelette moist and mouth watering. Cheese sandwich was a bit greasy. Thanks David Smith for overseeing with such... More

Everything I've ever had here has been great. The menu tends to be of a healthier fare. Their mochas are wonderful. I especially like their version of a Belgian waffle. The fruit served with it was very fresh.

Great restaurant. It has something for everyone - including vegan. It has a quaint atmosphere, and a comfortable setting. It is easy to hear everyone at a large table.

I have been here twice,and both times very cooked from scratch changing menus specials. Would expect weekends would be a wait for a table,so go midweek if retired etc. Even serves alcohol if you want it. Somewhat pricey, but hey,this isn't fast food place.

Been here several times and seems that this place is no longer what it used to be. Came here for dinner with a small group. At the end of dinner at 8 pm, we were the only ones at the place. The food was also underwhelming. Nothing was spectacular, just a bit off. Service was great but that's about the... More

Took friends out for their birthday and we ended up ordering breakfast. Simple food with a 'twist' that's really good. Some day I want to try their lunch menu!

The food here always borders between very good and great. Always a solid lunch choice. Reasonably priced. Nice spot for business lunch. Highly recommended

We are new to the area & read great things about this place so we're excited to try it for brunch. We were very disappointed with our experience. The service was awful & food just average. We waited 45 mins for food to come out after ordering & had to ask 3 people for ketchup before we received any. Doubt... More

We had our very first book club meeting here and they were extremely accommodating. The food and drinks were great and the atmosphere was amazing.
