We had breakfast sandwiches which were delicious and my husband like their coffee! My daughter was able to get a breakfast sandwich on gluten free bread. The staff was friendly, we liked the outdoor seating and my kids loved browsing the books while they waited.

I agree with Nomad0806. I found the staff to helpful, friendly, and responsive. People who ordered sandwiches, etc. told me that they had eaten the food earlier in the week and that it was worth repeating.
