Yummy!

We love visiting Chef Cindy's and look forward to our next visit. We again went for breakfast and chose new things on the menu. Everyone loved their choice. Chef Cindy takes traditional dishes and using her unique talents makes them oh so much better. We look forward to trying the 'Monte Carlo... read more

After reading about this cafe in the local Crestline newspaper, we decided to give it a try and made it about an hour before they close on Saturday's (2:00pm). What a great place. Chef Cindy personally greeted us and went over the menu choices and when I mentioned that I was a vegan, she specifically showed me their vegetarian menu.... More

We've been going to this great little cafe for a few years now. If you're looking for great home style cooking, this is the place! The scones alone keep me coming back plus you have to try the breakfast monte cristo or the French dipped waffles or breakfast tacos. Everything is delicious! Not just run of the mill food. Chef...

This place should have lines out the door the food is so great! This charming cafe may be the only enchanting thing about the Valley of Enchantment so try to overlook the location and make the drive for the food. The waffles are great, especially the orange covered option. My personal favorites are lunch items: white bean chili & chicken... More

I come here frequently and it keeps getting better. On this visit I had the breakfast Monte Cristo and it was the best one I've had yet. Cooked by Chef Cindy herself and served by husband Bill who always keeps up with my endless need for coffee. The restaurant is always clean and friendly.

We were seated only a minute before we were asked what we would like to drink and a minute later we had the iced tea and water that we requested. After we had looked over the menu, which was quite extensive, Cindy came to take our order. She explained how she prepared several of the items on the menu, mentioning... More
