Good Coffee, Great Pastries

I appreciate that this Café keeps longer hours than it's competitors. Seems like quality ingredients in their coffees. If you order food it takes a while but everything we ordered was delicious.

Get there when there are no lines. You order at one place and they yell out when you're order is ready. Limited breakfast menu, eggs are scrambled, not made to order but have some flavor to it. Not big on all the disposable items (get your own plastic silverware, condiments, napkins, syrups, etc.) but probable saves them money. Speaking of... More

My sandwich at lunch was good but my husband ordered a cinnamon roll was a little dry and maybe had been better early in the day.

I was looking for a place to eat, my first option was closed, so I kept wandering and found this gem! The bakery case was full of drool-worthy treats. I had a vegetarian sandwich on a ciabatta roll. It came with a bag of chips and I bought a pastry to take along. The sandwich was so good, fresh, a... More

We were staying at the Grand Lake Lodge but when it came breakfast time they only had a $24 per person brunch buffet. So we headed to town and were happy to find this place where we ate well for half the price. We enjoyed the drinks, the breakfast 'real food' and the yummy pastries. Service was quick and friendly.

Stopped by this morning for a breakfast treat. There was no one around for about 10 minutes. Finally someone comes out to the counter and helps the guy ahead of me. We ordered a chocolate croissant and a blueberry cinnamon roll type of thing. They were ok. Nothing special. The blueberry roll was tough. Not sure if it was over... More
