We had a great lunch here. The food was fresh and the atmosphere was lovely. We ate in the outdoor courtyard and they even allowed our dogs to sit under the table. For an added bonus, you can browse in their bookstore that has real books.

Went to this restaurant with a buddy, his son and my son. It was recommended by my boss and I saw that it was #1 here. Got the "Lea's Grilled Cheese and it was awesome. Great mix of flavors. My son got a plain ham sandwich...also very good. Try sitting outside, it's delightful.

We have lived here for 2 years and just today discovered this place. Hidden a couple blocks off Main street, this place has a delicious lunch menu. I had the avocado melt which was tasty with a nice bowl of fruit. Soup for the baby. Grilled cheese for the 3 year old and a delicious sandwich for the vegetarian husband.... More

Daughters and I have enjoyed fine lunches at this little restaurant. My girls loved the sandwiches and I've had great quiches. Soups also outstanding. We'll be back.

This restaurant is trendy and arty. The food /sandwiches were very good. I had a hummus melt and my husband had a meat sandwich and soup. The soup is homemade and the sandwiches are delicious. The service is excellent. There is a book store adjacent to this café. I would like to visit that next time

This is such a cute little cafe, I love going here on the weekends with friends and family. They don't have a huge menu, but everything on it is very yummy! They make a great mocha too!
