I am a regular visitor to IFE and go there for breakfast usually. Today, passing by, I decided to get a to go coffee (House Blend) and 2 Donuts. My bill came to over $12.00!!!

Very flaky large croissants. Great coffee. Wish they would serve breakfast past 11 am! But good soups and sandwiches. Scrumptious deserts to eat there and to take home from the freezer.

This small restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood near Meridian Street. One orders from a menu and then the food is delivered to your table. A friend and I both had the soup-half-sandwich and split a chocolate-peanut butter dessert. The soup was tasty and the half-sandwich ample for lunch. The dessert was decadent.

We stopped here for a late breakfast. Lots of items to choose from. My selected a broccoli quiche with fresh fruit and I had the sandwich special of the day. It's pricey but worth going to if you're in the area.

Visited for lunch with a couple friends and it was just ok. The food tasted fresh, but pretty bland, probably a healthy thing. The place was packed and seemed to be pretty popular.

Great and long time local restaurant in the middle of a quaint neighborhood. A variety of food that you can eat in out or in the go. Casual and relaxed and easy walking distance to other shops

Always a good choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Varied menu along with excellent bakery choices. Soups are my one of my favorites. We come here quite often and always love the many choices they have in their freezer section for take home.

Under new ownership. Love the food and the area. Will go back when I have the extra money. Although I might look for an alternative restaurant.
