My husband and I discovered this place some years back when we first visited Hyannis. We are both proud coffee snobs, so we're always checking out new coffee shops. The quality here was great, and the food was excellent. Everything is freshly made, and all the vegetables are grown in the Twelve Tribes commune, and the meats are locally sourced.... More

This intimate, small restaurant is all about the uniqueness of the surroundings. The food is very good...simple, flavorful sandwiches and salads...but the seating makes you feel like you're eating in a tree house. Booths are enclosed in wooden walls with hatched roofs...very cool!

When in Baxley Ga give this place a go! Good coffee and good food! The menu has more to offer than the boards behind the counter. The meals are made fresh and they do offer take out as well. There is plenty of good seating for dine in or just to relax before you continue your day! Here you do... More

Seating is in closed-off tables, so you kind of climb in, know what I mean? Great smoothies. We ordered different than we normally would because our baby granddaughter was with us. There's a religious tone to the place, in the literature you see sprinkled about. But they don't shove that down your throat. Service was decent. That's one area where... More

Ran by a local religious group (don't let that stop you, embrace it) this place has excellent food and good friendly service at a fair price.

The tree house design was unique. We sat in a booth that is small, but still comfortable. Sandwiches and apple cider were delicious. The service was fast. We got in by chance, and enjoyed our dinner. Paul gave us info about the area and all staff was friendly. Good hidden cafe.
