Great location to stop and unwind

I had the Chili the last time and it was great. My wife loves the fruit yogurt. All their breads are home made and they even have them for the gluten free people.

I can't say I get to many restaurants run by religious cults but that just adds to the experience. The food is flavorful, healthy and inexpensive and the building is quite interesting, lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The only downside is that it can take a while to get served, apparently cultists don't make the most efficient wait... More

To be honest in my opinion the food is marginal. But the ambiance of the facility is wonderful. They are very earthy and I think even grow some of there products. I've been their twice really wanting to like the the place but don't like the food. it's great to meet for tea, they don't sell regular coffee.

This is a little bit of a unique place. The people who run it are a religious group that grows things and does crafts and that type of thing out twards Valley Center. It is not open on Sunday. You find a lot of college students there because they don't rush you. Of course they are never in a rush... More

Four of us went for lunch and it was wonderful...the staff are so friendly, the ambience is quirky & charming, and the food is delicious. They bake their own bread and have a great selection of hot tea.... Even if there is a long wait...it's absolutely worth it. Highly recommend the reuben sandwich and the chili...enjoy!

I went with family and a friend and it seemed to be a bit over priced but it was good. Not just good in taste... I mean good for you to. So knowing that I (we) are worth the price, I will be going back : )

This is a traditional Jewish deli. Going for lunch was such a treat. Food is great and servers are so kind. It's a place you want to tour through before you sit down because the decor is so awesome with unique places to sit inside. There is also an outdoor patio which is pretty nice as qell.

What a fun and quirky place. The building is really special, with home built furniture and decorations. The people are extremely nice and provided excellent service. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I will definitely be back.
