Not really a restaurant, it's a coffee shop with ice cream and a few baked goods. The service is faster than Acoca and there are several computers available if you want to check email. Customers tend to be teen and college age which makes sense as Lawrence University is a block away.

I've been to all the cafés in the Fox Valley and this one if my favorite, and I go here often. It's in an old building that has three floors open to cafe goers. The atmosphere is personable and cultured. Usually they have modern, alternative rock playing over the speakers. I can't comment on the food because I've only had... More

They no longer have a menu because they no longer serve food. What a disappointment, I so enjoyed the black bean soup.

A great welcoming, all inclusive gathering place for every person regardless of age, sex, religious background, cultural or ethnic group. Pastries, coffee, beverages, ice cream. All are welcome. A great resource for the community. Great programs, including music.

I would rank this a great place for coffee, But it's no longer a restaurant so it shouldn't even be listed as a restaurant. They had great food here and natural health options but decided to focus on their community involvement of "harmony" instead or something like that. I zoned out at the explanation half way through. Shame too, I... More

This place has become a fixture for the younger generation of Appleton and I hope it stays for years to come. I'm glad I was able to enjoy their food for the last 2 years but unfortunately the food began to take away from their true focus of community engagement, and they have officially stopped serving lunch/dinner. On one hand... More

We stopped in at the Harmony on a Saturday around noon, before heading out to do some shopping. It was quite busy due to an afternoon recital, but that wasn't too much of a problem. When we ordered, the cashier acted strange when I asked for mayo on the side on the walnut burger, but said it would be no... More

This is one of my favorite places to go get lunch. Not only is the food awesome but its helping a nonprofit that does good things for the community. My favorite by far is the walnut burger. It is so mouth watering delicious. I was away for a few months traveling and when I got back that is the first... More
