Description: Come and sit a spell in our sunny cafe. Our recommendation for lunch is a lovely piece of quiche with one of our fresh salads. The wine and cheese salad, fresh greens with goat cheese, grapes, pecans and our famous balsamic vinaigrette is a customer favorite. Then, indulge in a delicious slice of New York style cheesecake, while sipping a steaming cup of gourmet tea. We source local food, organic when we can and make all our desserts, scones, dressings & sauces with quality ingredients. We purchase our bread and cinnamon buns from a local, organic bakery. Our beef is from local, natural producers. In season, Stephanie grows a variety of our greens, veggies and flowers, straight from the farm to our kitchen.

Café offers fresh, flavorful food. Great Hungarian Mushroom soup (but not available every day). Local bands sometimes in the evenings (expect to pay a small cover). Connected to their lovely home décor shopping area. Limited hours and café is not open for dinner or on Sundays and can be a little cool. Great place to lunch with a girlfriend!

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for visiting us! (It must have been a Thursday, as that's our Hungarian Mushroom Soup day!) And yes, we do have live bands here on Friday nights! (Currently our only evening open.) I hope to see you again soon, and to buy you a dessert (and I can turn the heat on if it's cool as well ;)

Ordered the steak and shrooms - the waitress informed me that they ran out of steak. That was the main reason I went there. Had to order a pizza which took over 30 minutes to arrive and was cold when I got it. The service was very poor. We tired several times to get our waitress attention (or any waitress for that matter) and sat for quite some time as our cold food turned frigid. Have noticed that this establishment has been slowly sliding downhill as far as the cafe goes.

Hi Susan,
I am so very sorry to hear about your experience. I'd love it if you gave me a call at 204-725-4181 so that I can make it up to you. Our steak does sell out quite quickly and by reservation. (Usually by Friday morning we have booked up for the steak special. So call early! 204-726-8785) We have been so very busy Friday nights, the servers are working as quickly as possible. We have been adding more and more staff to accommodate, so thank you for letting me know that we may, in fact, need even more! About the pizza, there is absolutely no excuse and I hope you accept my sincere apology. We will continue to work hard to ensure this does not happen again.

There are many healthy options for lunch here. Salads and soups prevail with quiches on offer as well. If you are sweet toothed there are a selection of desserts in the window case to oogle.

Love, love the gift shop and restaurant! It is a delightful place to eat - though my husband noted that there were only 4 men in a very full restaurant! The gift shop is a women's dream - a little bit of everything with many wonderful clothes, purses, jewelry etc. etc. Leave yourself lots of time to just browse!
Lunch was excellent and our server was delightful - we really enjoyed her!

Well Hello!
Glad to hear your husband joined you for lunch here ;) It's so heartwarming to see everyone enjoying this place. Thank you for your kind words, and taking the time to browse the gift shop. I'd like to leave a little something for you at the shop counter for the next time you come to town... a free dessert coupon! (The bread pudding is quite nice, and big enough to share with the hubby.)
See you again soon!
