Reminiscent of eating at the kitchen table when I was a kid, but the food here was so much better! (Sorry, Mom). Raisin Bread French Toast with maple/carmel syrup - mmmm! Asked the waitress to select a piece of pie for me. She brought me her favorite - rhubarb/apple.

Decorated in 50's-60's style and done very tastefully. Food is good but pricey. They serve nature friendly coffees that are excellent. Bakery products are a must try.

Stopped in on a Saturday morning. Very busy place. Had the egg sandwich - very good. We are planning on stopping in for dessert next time - they looked amazing.

if you want a great burger this is the place to go. Done just the way I wanted. Wait staff was great and very friendly. Definitely will visit more often. And really liked the 50's/60's decor.

We visited as a large group during rush hour, yet were seated quickly and served immediately. Pie crusts were thin and the fruit was plentiful. Many members of our group had their pie served warm with a side of ice cream, which we would recommend. Mocha was also excellent.

I am a fan of cafe's old or retro, I seek them out and this was a good one. Great lunch and nice service. Plenty of items on the menu and specials as well. Desserts galore in the display case. Clean and tidy. You would think it was the 50's. Nice classic looking tables and chairs. Right downtown for easy... More
