Great cookies, muffins and coffee. I've never had a meal there but have enjoyed many of their cookies.

Travelling for business is always an adventure when you don’t know an area well. Rockford, IL is a community with which I am not familiar. It’s not far from where I live but I rarely need to be there. Last Thursday, I found myself there for the entire both for work and to attend a wake. At one business, I... More

Great lunch spot. Tasty and not disappointing. Sure beats the chain fast-food joints! Recommend it highly,.

A local favorite for both breakfast and lunch. Fresh prepared entree with some uniquely delicious flavor combinations. It can get a little noisy during lunch time but it also is a wonderful coffee shop with plenty of space to browse the internet or prepare for that upcoming meeting

Great place to meet, have coffee, bagels, muffins, or meal and visit with your friends. It is regular meeting place for me & my friends. If weather nice sit out on the patio to see and be seen. Nobody rushes you.

You always now that you are going to get something good to eat when you go here. The salmon sandwich, asparagus mac n cheese and the tuna salad on home made bread-all hits. If you still have room for dessert-there's some fabulous choices for you-try some pie.

The bakery is awesome, the best muffins ever and great soups and sandwiches. It's not expensive but for soup and sandwiches it's a little pricey.

Mary's market has been around awhile. I go if someone else picks it but it's not a favorite. The jalapeño corn chowder is filling but not as flavorful as I'd hope. The Caesar salad I didn't eat. The ice tea tasted odd. Even the oatmeal cookie disappointed tonight. I ordered chicken salad for carry out, got home and had the... More
