I used to love this cafe. Several years ago we would frequent this cafe when lived in the area, things have changed. Vegetarian omelette appeared to have canned mushrooms. Home fries were old and hard. Muffin was warmed in micro without asking first. Polite service, but not the professional environment it used to have

We stopped in because it was just so hot and needed a place to cool off for lunch and didn't know what to expect - we hadn't read any reviews.. Lunch was exceptional and service was even better. All the staff is just so nice and welcoming.Would be on our list to try breakfast next time we are in town

Food was excellent - Big Portions and Cooked to perfection. Service was quick and efficient. There were 5 of us, two got omelettes, two got waffles and one got a sandwich so we spanned the menu - Everyone was more than satisfied with their choices. Definitely the place to go for a family breakfast.

Very good breakfast. We liked the corned beef and hash. It was a great place to stop before our hike. Very cute little town.

Right on Main Street in downtown St. Helena, this restaurant offers traditional dishes that you are sure to enjoy. The servers are all friendly, and the service is quick. I thought the dishes were a bit pricey, but very tasty.
