This cafe was recommended by the cabin we rented so we decided to pop in for lunch. It looked tiny from outside, and was small, but we loved it. Cosy, independent (nice change from the thousands of Starbucks!) and a very friendly server. The food...More

Love the staff. Love the menu. My dog loves the environment too. Prepare to slow down and enjoy. The sandwiches have a lot of flavor. The specialty donuts are always a temptation. Good luck getting out of there without one. What a treasure.

Great breakfast burritos- tastes good and very filling. Lots of bacon and egg. Large size. About 6-7 dollars. Acai bowls- love it! Love getting these especially since they are very hard to find in Texas.

We went here to get sandwiches to go, and it was delicious. Many different varieties to choose from, and prices were also really fair. I got a castaway smoothie which was great and VERY big. Only negative thing was that it didn't seem to be...More

It’s kinda hidden off the main road but it’s worth looking for – they make great coffee and sandwiches. (We came here twice.) We were there in winter and stepping into the warm hut felt like a hug. Happiness. Love the low-key, friendly vibe, and...More
