Great little hidden treasure

We loved this place! The girl and guy behind the counter were so friendly. Our food was made as we ordered it, and they offered fresh homemade sides to go with our sandwiches. It was just enough for us for lunch.

This is my favorite breakfast place ever. Martin is a great guy and makes me special omelettes. I had a dinner party for seven people a month ago. The food was gourmet..chicken paprikosh and broiled shrimp with a special Florida salad.

Service was good and the menu is very varied and good. It is located in an old office building which gives the owners some problems, the food is made to order, while excellent service is a little on the slow side. Should allow a little more time if you plan to go there.

Over priced very bland food! I left still hungry from the tiny portions served. The wait time for the food was ridiculous. I wont be back!

My husband and I got a couple of sandwiches to go. The Crusader Club and the Italian Wrap. The ingredients were so fresh and the flavors were amazing. The focaccia bread was incredible! The potato salad was delicious as well. We will definitely be returning. Our only complaint is that they are closed on Saturdays.

Visited the Crusader Cafe for lunch. I ordered a salad featuring sliced pears, pecans and a scoop of chicken salad on lettuce. It was a very modest scoop for the price ($7.25) and the lettuce used was nothing unusual. It wasn't served with a roll or other accompaniment. My husband ordered a pressed sandwich. Again, the sandwich was average and... More

Came for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We were the only ones there. There are only around 3 tables inside and around 4-5 more in the entry hallway. The breakfast was by no means anything special. Maybe their sandwiches are better. I would definitely not go back for breakfast. Overpriced too.

The food is so amazing you can taste the love in the food. It is a sweet and quaint little place that has the best orange juice that is really fresh squeezed.Everything on the menu is wonderful you can't go wrong. This is our favorite Sunday place to eat with the family.
