I have eaten at the Green House Cafe for years when other breakfast places are not open or I am meeting someone there. It's a decent breakfast, nothing special. But I have not been there for at least a year. I met a friend there today. I am still reeling from the NOT FUNNY t-shirts worn by all the staff,... More

I do not expect those that cater to the general public to be "in your face" activists for the eating of pigs by humans. While enjoying the food at this cafe you will also experience, very directly, the establishment's view of eating pigs. One message being that bacon is a vegetable???? The other making fun of pigs being killed so... More

I liked that this restaurant used locally sourced very fresh ingredients. Lunch prices for soup and a sandwich ( 1/2 sandwich) were on the high side. Having said that, the several soup choices were impressive, and the sandwiches were delicious. I don't like "mile high" meat on a sandwich so took a chance on the reuben and was glad I... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch. Found tge service to be lacking. I had read the reviews of others commenting on the chicken salad with cherries. I have been eating a low carb diet and asked if the chicken salad could be put on a bed of greens instead of a croissant. When it was brought to me their... More

We ended up loving our food but once we were seated we didn't see any waitstaff for over 15 minutes and finally at that point we had to ask if we could place an order. It was a bit frustrating as we were on a time constraint but it was tasty food.

Stopped in for lunch one day, and it was well worth my time. The TC Reuban sandwich was recommended by the waitress, it was delicious! Such a surprising local take on the sandwich that has been around.

Cozy place, quick service. I had the club sandwich and it was a large service and delicious. My spouse had the salad which was one of the biggest salads we have ever seen. Delicious! Prices are a bit high, but given the sizes of the servings, appropriate. Our service was quick and friendly. We will be back.

We stopped for an early lunch after walking up and down Front Street downtown to see what was available. The large selection of soups posted in the window caught our attention. My husband had the crab & red pepper bisque with a reuben and I had chicken noodle with the chicken salad croissant. He enjoyed his sandwich more and I... More
