There is no set menu for this little place because they change it up every day. Everything was delicious. They seem to have a passion for good food. They also have an extensive tea selection. I plan on going back.

The staff was polite and friendly. The food was limited. Healthy options though needed some more flavor. Not everyone's cup of tea but if they added a couple more options or even some more flavor to the existing menu it would be that much better. Definitely good for a vegan

I'm a huge fan of their grilled pizzas which are available in the summer Thursday evenings at the Cafe, Saturday mornings at the Ligonier Farmers Market, at the Route 30 Wednesday evening dinners and during Fort Ligonier Days in October. You can BYOB and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere or, like me, order ahead and take them to go. These nice... More

Very friendly, very accomodating for families. Had a fabulous Mexican dinner there. The pollo poblano was outstanding!!! Would certainly return. They even fixed plain cheese quesidillas for the young kids. Would recommend to anyone!

Gluten free is important to me, and Connections always comes through. Even if you are not gluten intolerant, their fresh unique menu is so attractive!

Unusual but charming small cafe. You go to kitchen where they explain what's being served that day/meal. All fresh and home-made. Mostly vegetarian. Beyond delicious!!

Sunny, warm late October day, scouring my favorite haunts in Ligonier and decided to do late afternoon lunch. Have been wanting to try this newer place, but not impressed with it from the outside. We sat out on the porch, btw, could have used a cleaning. We were invited into the kitchen pantry to select our food. This is where... More

Always a healthy menu with at least 6 different types... More
