Needed food. New to town. Recommended by folks at Bass Pro which is across the street. They were right, good food, great service and a tiny bit in the pricey side. $40+ for lunch for three w tip.

Breakfast this visit. Coffee and bagels and breakfast sandwiches. Loved that the eggs are made to order even for the sandwiches. Le Colombe coffee is always a plus!

Food and service are very good. Breakfast lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed. Baked oatmeal and fresh baked pastries and desserts are the best. Chicken Caesar wrap is very good. Fresh brewed coffees and iced tea.
