Last time we stopped for a cold drink and decided we had to come back for lunch. We both had hot dogs with goldfish crackers and soda. Nothing fancy but it sure was tasty. While we were eating a train pulled into the station down the street. We didn't realize they had started running. Next time we will ride the... More

First, let me say that my husband and I enjoy the company of the owners, Carol & Danielle. They are both very pleasant, and work at a fast pace to deliver you delicious food or drink in a timely manner. My husband makes this cafe an almost daily stop when working in the area. He is an avid coffee drinker,... More

Have been wanting to go here for a while and ride the train. We were in the area and stopped to check it out. If we hadn't had plans to eat elsewhere we would have eaten here. We plan to come back when the train starts running and check out the food..

The absolute best authentic Italian food in a 75 mile radius. Friends/family travel from Baltimore, southern Maryland and Washington DC to eat here.

We stopped at the cafe as the mid point of our weekly hike on the rail trail. Great grilled cheese sandwiches and they brought a water bowl for our dog, Lupin. Nothing fancy about the place. Just great food in a spotless cafe with pleasant staff.

Watch out for the Air Monkeys. Once they get hold of you, you will never think of a wrap with banana, strawberry jam, granola, apple and peanut butter as something that doesn't seem that would work. However, you would be missing out on something really delicious. It works! The service was great and they were outgoing and very friendly. The... More

I really enjoy the special of the day. You could taste the fresh tomatoes and basil. The people were very friendly and cup of ice coffee was refreshing. It was a great stop for our bike ride on the rail trail.

This is a very nice place right on the bike trail. There isn't much else around, so this Cafe is a sight for sore eyes. Don't expect the culinary experience of your year here, but that's not really the point of stopping into this Cafe anyway. This is an inexpensive Cafe that also offers a range of nonalcoholic drinks that... More

This is a nice place to have a casual lunch or just a cold drink or snack during a bike ride. It is on the NCR rail trail. The chicken salad wrap is very good. The salad is delicious too. The cafe is clean and the employees are friendly. Watch the train go by as you sit in the air... More
