I had the Local Farmer's Market vegetable stir fry with shrimp. It was so delicious that I couldn't believe it was healthy! The next day, I had the buckwheat waffles and they were extraordinary!

The breakfasts are delicious and the setting is quiet. It is nice to sit outside, but on cold mornings the inside is comfy too.

Wonderful healthy options for adults and kids. Expensive but worth it. Good service from Salvatore. The egg white omelette was delicious and the granola was decadent. The ambience was relaxing.

Good service, basic menu. Great chicken sausage for breakfast. Weak coffee. A lovely quiet place for a casual meal.

Our waitress was terrific, she made this a truly special dining experience. The menu was just ok. I had the kale salad, not so great and the turkey sandwich, with was a typical turkey sandwich. My husband had the edamame pot stickers (yummy) and the stir fry (too sweet). I would definitely return for breakfast.

Wonderful place to grab some breakfast after a morning swim in the pool. I ordered two sides to combine and create a custom dish. The staff were friendly and attentive

It's a wonderful feeling to eat healthy but at the Spa Cafe, they are experts at it. I always feel satisfied while at the cafe. Attention to detail is what they are great at!
