Simple Done Right

Love the proximity to Pack Rat Annie's and sitting next to the books. The food is fresh, wholesome and leaves you feeling nourished. It's certainly not fancy and doesn't try to be. The staff are super sincere and helpful - happy to visit and lunch here over the holidays.

The eggs benny on the weekends is certainly a highlight. The staff are very friendly and the service is quick. Great place to meet up with friends and have a great breakfast.

Went to meet my sister in law for brunch. Upon my arrival they had already ordered. It took us 10 min to wave down the server we asked her if it was to late for me to get my order in and she said yes it should be fine because the other large table had not ordered yet. ..so reluctantly... More

Had a hard time choosing something from the menu and then they were out of it. Food was so-so, nothing to write home about. Service was OK, but just. lack of passion in staff was apparent. Waitress was tired and barely tolerating her shift.

We were seated quickly, served promptly, and enjoyed a truly fine breakfast! Their reputation for fantastic eggs benedict is well-deserved. Make sure to take some time to look around. This cafe is also a used book store that also includes a collection of CDs and records. Overall, a very positive atmosphere and a lot of fun.

On one of the side streets off main - glad we checked it out! Super great breakfast! Great service. Restaurant shares location with used book store which is a little different than the norm.

The place was full of locals which is always a good sign. Despite being very busy we were quickly seated and served. The eggs Benedict with Ham rated 5/5 in quality and 4/5 in quantity. The Gerry's Breakfast sandwich was barebones but delicious. Tucked away on a side street you might miss it if not looking which, given its popularity,... More

This little eating nook has a great vibe with the book store. The food is yummy and there is even the option of SPATZLE! How excellent - they even have gluten free spatzle (-: A great little place to have breakfast or brunch.
