Small, quaint establishment that is not in fact seaside. Dining here for breakfast with my husband and daughter, we didn't have the greatest meal. My spicy chai was good. My husband had warm coffee with stringy, fatty corned beef hash. My huevos ranchero dish was not traditional style but not entirely a miss. So, mine wasn't bad but had to... More

Enjoyed this place immensely, visited several times. Great pancakes and the coffee is the best. Owner also remembered my order which is a sign of very, very good service. Visit and enjoy!

Horrible service. Do NOT eat here. Guy was throwing a fit over a customers coffee and closed the cafe down as we were about to order after seating us with menus. Drove an hour to eat there and this is they operate their business.

Amazing breakfast. Rode our bikes here and dined outside. We got the coconut lemon pancakes, chorizo breakfast burrito and cinnamon roll, with coffee drinks that put Starbucks to shame! Everything was to die for, I wish I lived here to go every day!

Heard others rave about this place and was disappointed. Not sure if they changed ownership or what but according to friends it was different. The food was average at best having an order of breakfast corn dogs and a burrito. The burrito was huge and that was about it. The bacon was all at one end and the potatoes were... More

We showed up before the morning crowd, ordered breakfast and sat down on the deck to wait... and wait... and wait. First came the oatmeal for one of us about 20 minutes after ordering. 30 minutes later, I went back to check on the rest of our order. The big guy at the cash register seemed a little put off...

Great place for a cup of Joe and breakfast! Service was great. The selection of food was awesome! It's a sit outside type of place not fancy at all.

Stopped here after a morning walk. It's a little cafe, but has so much in it. The coffee was really lovely, shame we weren't hungry, because the cakes looked amazing.

I've been here a few times now...and still amazed at what comes out of the kitchen in this small establishment. Food is different for everyone and for me...WOW. Pancakes? Any of them...Amazing. The hash...amazing. About the only thing I've had there that was "average" was the eggs benedict. I've yet to have breakfast there where everyone wasn't wanting to taste... More

I really wanted to like this place but waiting 45 mins for 2 sandwiches, especially without an apology or explanation is unacceptable. After reading other reviews, it sounds like this is pretty typical...how about hire more staff so that your customers don't have to wait an absurd amount of time...you charge enough for the food to be able to do...
