Great food and coffee selection

Great place for breakfast or lunch. The food is tasty and felt home cooked. The espresso-related coffee drinks are made well.

Two locations - one downtown and one by College Mall. Both easily reached by bus. Lot with free parking at College Mall location. Eat in or take out. Tasty coffee shop American staples. We love to treat ourselves to breakfast there.

This place was absolutely delicious. My mother was slightly disappointed in the cranberry turkey sandwich but loved her cream of spinach and mushroom soup. I had the best macaroni and cheese and we ended with a delicious, beautiful carrot cake cupcake. Absolutely will come again!

Sometimes Bloomington restaurants stay open because they're trendy and famous, not because they're good. We waited 25 minutes for mediocre breakfast. Food was average at best, no one was friendly, they forgot part of the order, I had to get up and go to the counter to resolve the problem. You have to clean up after yourself and I never... More

Ran in here for a quick breakfast and coffee. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table or you can get to go. To-Go took a little longer than expected but the Sausage sandwich was great and the coffee was hot!

Spent our anniversary supper here. Good food. Loved the steaks and the salads. The desert was divine. Good service too and the atmosphere was very romantic.

Advantages:1. They have the best chocolate cake in town! The cake icing is made of pure dark chocolate and the layers are soft and juicy. 2. It is a perfect place for studying due to modern design, little noise, and large windows. 3. Staff is nice. Disadvantages: no real food dishes.

Mediocre. Nothing to right home about. Sandwiches-more bread than flavor. Tomato basil soup was more like a very thick pasta sauce. No service with a smile.

Great coffee and baked goods. Good place to sit, read or work, and watch the world go by. Nice patio in good weather (ours wasn't). Challah French Toast was filling and delicious.
