Awesome for breakfast

Our family went there almost every morning of our 6-day visit for breakfast and coffee. Great muffins (try the blueberry one grilled!) and scones. Loved the Mexicali egg wrap. Delicious lattes. Nice indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff.

After being sent to the bakery down the street for coffee, which turned out to be too weak to drink, I found this place. They have espresso and other coffee drinks, as well as lots of interesting food options. Everything we ordered was good. Since we were just passing through, we only went here once, but I felt lucky to... More

We stopped here for lunch and found a relaxed atmosphere, very helpful staff, lovely flower garden and delicious (and creative) sandwiches. The sandwiches, combined with the lovely lemonade and smoothies we had a memorable lunch; great spot!

Great sandwiches. All different than the garden variety local grinder. One gets that homemade taste or made with love. Always a good sandwich.

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, since I'm not a fan. It was... 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!
