Good place for breakfast

For breakfast this morning, I ordered the Spinach Quiche and my wife ordered the Sampler. The quiche was very tasty and really loaded with cheese. I'm a cheese lover, but it was almost too cheesy for me. As a side I chose the potatoes which were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The quiche also... read more

I ordered a different sandwich then her, lettuce, mayo and turkey on a croissant. The turkey was lumped in center not... More

Stopped here on our way back through Rockford from Champaign. Extremely fresh and delicious food. Breads and baked goods are top notch and we even took a loaf of sourdough home with us after our meals. Tried one of the benedicts and it nearly melted in my mouth. Definitely will be back on our next trip through Rockford.

Everything about this place is fantastic. The menu has so many options to choose from. From flatbreads, to pasta, to sandwiches and wraps, every combination on the menu sounds delicious. This visit I had the Pesto Artichoke Grilled Cheese. It was fantastic. The pasta side it came with was a bit small of a portion, but at least it came... More

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.
