Fabulous lunch!

I love this little cafe! It was my first visit and I can't wait to eat there again. Plenty of comfortable seating, including an outdoor area with umbrellas! Clean and quirky decor featuring local artists. Quick friendly service. I had the BLT that comes with avocado, but I had them leave that off... read more

A great little place for breakfast with outdoor seating. Good value and good service. The coffee was great and I had a bagel with lox and the works. Great taste and great value and the bagels real NY bagels not the weak Connecticut versions. Lots of dogs outside and very good eggs.

We recently visited Cafe SoL on a Sunday afternoon, just after lunch. Even though it was a hot summer day, it was not too busy. For a party of three that ordered just sandwiches we waited about 30-40 minutes for our food. We watched people who ordered well after us receive their food. That was unacceptable; it was like they... More

Stopped in for a sandwich to go. Ordered the Triple B which is a veggie black bean burger wrap. Lots of veggies and spices that had a little heat. Fresh food and friendly service. Great spot in town to grab lunch.

Met a friend here for lunch and the atmosphere was nice and quiet, perfect for talking. My daughter and I both ordered the yin and yang (half a soup and half a salad) My daughter got a half a Reuben and a half of a Caesar salad. I got a Greek salad and a veggie sandwich and both were average.... More

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.
