Stopped here while waiting for Science center to open. The shoppe was run by a single person yet was very efficient. Our orders were taken and expediously served. I had the red eye and enjoyed every sip. We didn't try any of the pastries but they looked yummy. Will definitley hit this spot up again.

I stopped by for lunch and coffee. It's a charming shop, and everything was was very good. I stayed and worked on the computer for a few hours. Very nice staff.

Love this local place, but they sometimes have slow, inattentive service in the food area (may be short-staffed at times). Coffee and breakfast items are always divine. Small lunch and dinner menu but it's tasty- from salads to paninis and soup. Hummus plate is great as a starter. Full bar with creative specials on weeknights. Outdoor seating and a comfortable...

We asked Frazier’s History Museum for a place nearby where we might have lunch, and Mrs. Potter’s was recommended to us. It was within easy walking distance. The empty flower pots outside the entrance suggested that the place might not be open. A peek through the door revealed bare wooden tables—bare of everything including basic necessities like sugar, salt and... More

For being in such a busy area, this place was super cute and the food was delicious. Beware, the salad they use is very light and not super filling.. But they taste great! Quick service, great food!

Pros: - Nice seating area. High ceilings, lots of space, and casual atmosphere makes for a pleasant experience. - The service was very friendly and attentive. Cons: - The food was sub-par. The southwest chicken salad was plain, and the chicken was bland. The coffee wasn't to my liking either. Overall: If you need to grab a quick bite near... More

Great lunch (I had the hummus and vegetable plate and coffee, my husband had a panini and a kalhua and Godiva chocolate milk shake). Nice little place in a beautiful old building. Friendly staff. Would love to visit again when in the area.

This cafe fit what we were looking for: a casual and quick lunch. We had a quesadilla and a panini. We both took half to go as a snack for later. Our server was friendly and willing to change the type of bread. The cost was reasonable.

Can't comment on the food, but stop by this local little shop for a great cup of coffee. Support the independent shops

It was a morning after a night before, but the coffee and bloody mary were spot on. The young man who made the bloody mary asked if it was OK, and I advised him to not change a thing. I remember the coffee, remember that bloody mary, but forget what I had for my light breakfast, but it was really... More
