Stopped for breakfast. Healthy fresh food choices, great coffee. Outdoor seating on the veranda is lovely summer option. Staff are a little too laid back, but the place has a nice vibe.

We ALWAYS stop here when in town. The veg burger stack is healthy and delicious (with a great pattie) and there's typically a good range of vegan desserts. Soups are tasty too.

I really enjoyed the seafood chowder. It is served with their homemade bread & butter. The bread was very very good. I spotted multi-grain and some other nuts in them. I feel healthier just eating there. Would return for more bread and soup.
