Stopped by here with friends for lunch expecting a normal offering. OMG - sandwiches were fantastic and worth the higher than average price. The pizza was huge and very tasty! Good vegetarian options - unusual for America. Enjoyed every minute. Dog friendly patio and pretty town.

Found this place by accident after attempting to have lunch at several other places that were just too crowded and too much effort. Ordered at the bakery counter and then sat at the area outside but it is inside.. sort of like a mall food court. Had the Turkey #2 on freshly baked bread with a spring mix side salad....it... More

$10.50 for a dry cookie and a single eclair? Surely that's a joke? What a ripoff. Absolutely would not recommend stopping here. The bakery down the street was way better, and the service was 10 times friendlier.

Very nice place to sit outside at a table and have coffee and some of their excellent pastries. The breakfasts are also very good. The service is somewhat shaky, the ladies have NO personality and chat amongst themselves seemingly oblivious to the concept of hospitality. They aren't really rude, the just are not friendly and seem disorganized. I go there... More
