Great soup and tasty sandwiches. Selection limited but good. Didn't try any of the baked goods but they looked tempting.

We had planned to visit here one morning, but walked by to see people lined up even out the door, so we decided to go elsewhere! Well even during the hot air balloon festival we could not find another place open, so we went back...More

We went there for breakfast today with our tour group. They had no problem with us even when we just sat and talked for a while.

Pretty average selection of baked goods, which turned out to be very dry. Coffee was ok, I asked for extra hot but they could not accommodate. It was a so-so visit but what really struck me was the lackadaisical attitude of the staff. I felt...More

Had lunch there three days in a row. Located at the far end of the commercial street, so it is easy to pass by. Street parking. Daily soup and sandwich specials, all of which were filling and tasty. Not a large room, and it does...More

My husband and I stopped in here yesterday. I ordered a hot chai, and he got coffee. His coffee was good . The chai was a bit watery tasting, but some may prefer that, and it may not always be that way. I also tried...More

We wanted to find a place to get coffee before we left town. Glad we discovered this place. Had great coffee and scones. Go to the back room and sit on the stools and enjoy the beautiful view. Go outside and listen to the river...More

This bakery has good espresso but only so-so service. The barista who made my drink might have just been having an off day - who knows. The person who took my order didn’t seem too thrilled to be working. Plenty of seating throughout the place...More

Thank you for your candid review. I apologize if you felt that our service was below your expectation. If this was a recent visit, we have been in the process of training a couple of new staff members, so perhaps they were still in the...More
