I am so lucky to work across the street from Cafe SoL! They food is fees and delicious. They have a wonderful patio in the front that is surrounded by flowers. It's a great place to eat, relax and socialize!

Remember the refrain from CHEERS: "Everybody needs a place." Well this is my place for a daily cup of great coffee and an occasional breakfast or lunch sandwich or wrap. THe menu changes very little, but the choices are sufficiently varied to satisfy a meat lover or a vegan. My favorites include the breakfast sandwich with turkey sausage and the... More

This cafe is great. The Food, Drinks, and Service are all great. You always feel welcome when you enter. No order is too complicated or simple. Their specials, especially their Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Breakfast Sandwiches are great. So are their Smoothies and pastries...It's all good. They support the community and we support them.

Always something new on the menu. Great sandwiches. Good breakfast. Very casual, but friendly staff. Worth a stop.

Staying at a local hotel and they recommended Cafe SoL, dropped in for a sandwich and a smoothie, it was everything I was told, and more, Service rocks, atmosphere is right up there, just a very nice place to chill for a bit and enjoy life. Will be back, without a doubt.

Good food, casual atmosphere. Cross between coffee shop and sandwich shop. Great breakfasts, and lunch sandwiches. In summer, very pleasant outdoor dining.

Fresh and innovative, this is one of the more interesting establishments on Main St. Lots of vegetarian options, fancy coffee, tea, juices. If you're in the mood for something healthy, colorful with carefully balanced flavors, this is the place for you. Love the outdoor terrace.

Cute place you can sit in or out- surrounded by beautiful flowers. Soup, sandwich's and salads are super fresh and interesting. Don't skip this if you're in town.

I love this cafe. The staff are friendly and accomodating and the food is great. They will do catering platters as well. I had the Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato (BLAT) sandwich last week, and added egg to it - delicious! Gluten free options too.

The food is good but I've consistently waited a minimum of 15 minutes every day this week when I came for my tuna melt. (And I was the only customer there!) Each time I've had to go up and ask if my food is ready and then they always go back and check and profusely apologize and bring it out.... More
