My group of friends and I had brunch here after our run. We were starving but yet the big servings were just that. Big! I had to take it home with me for dinner. Love food, service and space. Great patio too!

Stopped by while we strolled main street and had an iced coffee drink and a chocolate bundt cake dessert. They have a variety of cakes, pies and pastries, coffees and serve breakfast and lunch dishes as well. Great friendly staff.

Just had lunch and it was a mixed bag. Very good coffee and a stellar omelet . The half sandwich and salad was quite poor in context. The bread was quite thick and the turkey was low level pressed meat which is quite bland. The...More
