It was a Saturday and the place was hopping, as usual. We had not been there in a couple years. Service was great, always friendly even with all the hustle and bustle. I ordered a hamburger (real meat). It was so dry, like the opposite of a juicy lucy. And they only put tiny spoonful of their catsup on it.... More

On our first trip to this cafe, we were hoping for a brunch with good coffee. We received a treat beyond what we expected. My order of eggs Benedict had perfectly poached eggs, tender ham and a hollandaise sauce that was exceptional without dominating the entire marriage of eggs, muffin and ham. Instead, the ingredients combined for a breakfast of... More

This place is a gem! Staff is friendly and food is amazing. Lots of vegetarian options in a really bright warm setting. Bakery had amazing baked goods and the latte was delicious. Fresh food, worth every penny.

My family didn't agree on our experience here. While I loved it, son and hubby were not that fond of it. They deemed it too crunchy granola. I suppose one should know that before they here. You not going to get the traditional greasy spoon breakfast. This is local, farm fresh healthy goodness. I had the Savory waffle with Parsnip,... More

Support the concept, and have a farm to fork restaurant ourselves. Great to feel good after eating real food. Dishes were artfully crafted and the atmosphere was inviting. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. You know you will get good food when the kitchen crew are joking and having fun while working.

My friend had been wanting to try this place for sometime. Parking is on street, restaurant busy, decor cute, but noisy. But the food is what makes a restaurant and they fell short. Have an onion allergy. When my sandwich/salad arrived, there was no dressing on salad; not even oil and vinegar. Plus my parsnip pear sandwich with no beets... More
