This cafe is really nice and the atmosphere is very pleasant next to the river. The service was great and the coffee and sandwiches were delicious.

They have a great selection of great tasting food. I really love the caesar salad which is served with a nice fresh warm roll. The deck outside is nice for viewing the local creek.

Stopped there for a late lunch. Was super excited that they still had a breakfast menu and that there was gluten free options. If you want a drink they also have great cocktail options.

I haven't been for dinner either; check out their web site for menus (the site is very slow to load but it does eventually).
