My husband and I went for breakfast. Good food for a good price. The entire restaurant smelled like freshly baked bread and the lavender lemonade was so good! We will be back in the future! Highly recommended.

Our family went here based on great reviews. We anticipated a little wait but the menu looked like it had many good options. The line to order (and pay when you order) took about 10 minutes and we were able to find a table to...More
