Great breakfast. Steamer Eggs with salsa was yummy. Small neighborhood place doing good baked treats, too.

This was a really great place to get lunch. It's around 10 minutes from the parking lot by fisherman's wharf, and serves huge portions of sandwiches and salads... The BLT and Greek salad were great! Staff were friendly, giving us good recommendations, and the price reasonable. Thank you :)

I like what they are trying to do with the food, but both front of house and back of house are very, very slow. The cobb was good and had an interesting preparation with an over easy egg on top. The dressing was on the side which was also appreciated. All of the ingredients were very fresh, but it took... More

I know it's a small neighborhood type place, but I was hoping that the place would be better as some of the reviews provided. In all fairness it may have been just the dish I ordered although the others were not that thrilled either. I had a omelet that had way to much sour creme in it, pretty much all... More

Very popular spot! It was busy both visits. The décor is a little funky! Staff is pleasant & you'll get a great breakfast at a reasonable price.

Okay. One thing is clear - if you are a group of more than four forget about it. The wait is too long plus the seating is going to be awkward. Our group of 9 was hard to handle by the restaurant. Having said that, the food is certainly of high quality. The steamer omelets are worth a try -... More

First of I was excited because I saw this place on Triple D through the foodnetwork channel. Once I got there I was greeted by a waitress and she was quite friendly. Then I came to the counter and was looking at this big board they have on the wall and was sort of undecided on what I wanted so... More

Wow! Yummy garlicky Cesar salad!! Got there right before they closed for lunch so service was on the slow side.

I went in for breakfast and placed an order to-go. It took awhile to get my food but I was okay with that as the place was packed and it just meant they were making it fresh. I was a little disappointed with how greasy the food was when I got it back to our hotel. As an "organic" cafe,... More

We loved this eatery! The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food is delicious and the decor quaint. All food is freshly prepared, pastries/cakes made fresh each day with a good range of options.
