A friend and I had lunch here. We sat outside and had a great time. The tables are a little close but other than that it was terrific and we would go back again.

We found this quaint home style cafe through trip adviser and decided to visit on a rainy Bonita Morning. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and friendly staff and the quality of our breakfasts was excellent. The present owners have given the cafe a rustic but welcoming feel and are striving to make this work. The owners have French origins and the quality of the bread and pastries was very high. Not necessarily the place to go for a fry up but I would highly recommend the BLT on Ciabbata or the salmon flatbread whilst the yoghurt with granola was enough to keep a normally hungry 15 year old full for hours. A really charming feel to the place and whilst we ate inside on this and our subsequent visits there is a nice decking area which on dryer days would be an excellent place to relax and take in the world.

I understand that the owners of Survey may well be taking a vacation in September but if you get the chance to drop by for a relaxing breakfast or early lunch I don't think you will be disappointed.. we will definitely be returning later in the year.

We love to support local businesses vs the big chains when possible. We found Survey Cafe several years ago and have introduced friends to this little gem. Since we first started going, it has gone through 3 different owners. We went earlier this week to see how it was doing under the new owners.

Thank goodness this lovely local restaurant has not suffered because of the change of ownership. We were delighted to see some of our old favorites and some new items. Their Wonder Garen salad is my favorite. You can have it with or without chicken salad. The chicken salad adds another $2 to the price, but it is still very reasonable. My husband had the BLT flatbread and enjoyed it.

Sometimes I hate to give away these little tucked back places - selfishly, of course. I do feel the new owners deserve community and visitors' support - especially during the lean summer months. They are so friendly and accommodating.

We will be back!

Quaint little place with good food for brunch! We will be coming back to try it again. There was some confusion about whether the sandwiches came with a side.

Excellent service, food, and wonderful relaxed feeling. Their chocolate croissants are as good as we've had in Paris!
