Yummy food

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

Enjoyed our dinner of flatbread pizza, salad and wine for $20. I chose the Caesar's salad and it was delicious. My husband had the regular salad and he enjoyed it. We had the Mushroom Bruschetta pizza and it was wonderful. Both of us liked the Pinot Noir wine we ordered. Great value and great food. Always have loved Mary's Market... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant. I'm not sure what happened, but their recipes changed. The sweet potato tomato soup was the best. Someone decreased the ginger and increased the sugar. Uggh. I heard that they got sold, I don't know if that is true or not. The staff is unfailingly snooty and snippy, be prepared.

We enjoy eating here for a fast lunch when shopping in town. You order your food at the counter and it's delivered to your table. Food is better than fast food and tasty. We'll return.
