Trio advisor comes through again. On my way home from a lunch meeting, found this gem right off of 81 in south central Pennsylvania. Tomato and white bean soup was stupendous, not too thick and perfectly seasoned. I'll be back next trip!

I have enjoyed eating at this local cafe 2 times. The food is not only delicious, but it is healthy food. Most items are organic, and there are many gluten free items. I have had their soup of the day twice, black bean and chicken tortilla, and they taste homemade. The atmosphere is very pleasant and there are lots of... More

The title says it all. It is definitely healthy food but that's the only positive. For us it was overpriced. I got two scrambled eggs with toast and coffee. Just the plain eggs & toast were $8.00. Hubby got eggs and buckwheat pancakes which were too heavy and doughy even for him (and he's a big eater). The lady who... More

I love this place! It has a quaint small cafe atmosphere and a very healthy organic menu to select from. I love the veggie hummus wrap. It's called Pure and Simple for a healthy reason. Great food, great place, with good friend. Can't beat it

Would have given 5 star rating as food is so good, but one employee has been rather rude several times. Sometimes you have to wait at counter to order as not enough help. Each time the food and drinks have been delicious. Highly recommend their soups! Also the Thai black rice salad. Desserts, Yummy!!! All organic! Love the carrot cake!... More

This is a lovely venue to visit in Greencastle. They turned an old auto repair garage into an organic cafe. Whoever did the conversion did a fabulous job. It's uplifting just to walk in, spacious with a feeling of bigger town quality. Tried to get a latte there and only two options, soy milk or half and half. I opted... More

We ate here and had quite a few different things off the menu. It's good, coffee nice and staff friendly. The portion sizes on the soup were pretty stingy! It was nearly a scene from Oliver...'please sir can I have some more'. Would definitely go again but demand more soup 😁

This cafe is located in the charming town of Greencastle, PA. It offers healthy, organic food choices served in a casual and inviting atmosphere. Their salads and soups are delicious, as are their wraps and dessert items. Love this place!

Reserved a space for 10. We were traveling through the area to another destination. The restaurant space was very inviting. It was great that when we arrived, we could select from the breakfast or lunch menu. Service was excellent - prompt and accommodating. Food was delicious with generous portions. Highly recommend!
