Gourmet Breakfast Sandwiches, Bakery, Salads, Sandwiches, and Soups (Gluten Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan options too). We also have a kids menu. Are you a coffee snob? Come check out our fresh roasted beans and have one of our Baristas make you a signature latte or Cappucino. Got a pet? Bring 'em with- large outside seating areas are very accommodating.
