The quirky cute farm- to- table cafe, is family owned. This location was off the beaten path, a bit, maybe a 20 minute drive from the beach. I think there are two locations in the area. Once there, there is a small unpaved parking lot....More

For a healthy, well priced lunch... You can't beat this place. It's kind of tucked away, but once you find it, you'll come back time and time again. Theres no better option in the area, one of our absolute favorites.

I absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is quirky, eclectic & hip. Reminds me of restaurants I've ate at in Asheville, NC. We ate on a pergola screened covered porch with swirling fans, all kinds of hand-crafted, upcycled glass objects to look at. There are...More

I have eaten here several times and have enjoyed each visit. In an out of the way spot of Va Beach. The decor, staff, food has always been great. Summer be prepared to wait a bit, worth it

Very busy, even in the early afternoon. Smells wafting in from the bakery were heavenly. All scratch-made foods--breads, dressings, and desserts. Hard to converse with our table members, as quite loud. We'd still return for the food and good service, though!
