Stopped in twice on a brief vacation trip for a cup of coffee and breakfast snack. The spinach and mushroom croissant is unbelievable! Will definitely put your day off to the right start. Coffee is fresh and staff are very friendly. Can't go wrong here!

Both sandwiches were solid. The BLT suffered from April tomatoes but hey I was dumb enough to order it. Service can get backed up and seating is limited. You can pick up sandwiches early and eat outside along the rec path or other benches scattered about town.

It is a small place, with very friendly staff! We just had coffee and pastry, taking cookies home! Would go again. Would love to try lunch or breakfast there. Everything looked yummy.

How is it possible to have such speedy service and still have my eggs come out hard and cold? Every time!? Given them a few tries and I ask not going back, too bad to, the service really was great.

We had an awesome lunch at the Cafe! Best salads and chicken salad. So fresh!! Definitely pricier for a deli style cafe but you pay for what you get. Delicious and would absolutely return!

Very small place inside next to a small gallery of shops. Found the breakfast very uninspiring, in no way unique or interesting and service efficient but by no means friendly and engaging. Food was fine but certainly would not seek this out to go again. Eat next door at Green Mountain, was far better.

If you like chicken salad, get it here -- it was delicious! I also had the potato and leek soup, which was tasty. This is a tiny place with just a few tables and counter service. It's terrific for a casual, quick lunch.

We discovered this place a few years ago and now it is on our must visit lit every year. Great breakfast and lunch. They truly have the best BLT in town.
