The lady behind the counter was so friendly and helpful. The sticky buns and coffee were better than average and there were a few tables inside. Since the shop is close to the main street we opted for takeout and a park bench. Hint: she will make you a delicious home made pie...not frozen...with a days notice. Overall, a place... More

Went there for breakfast on a Sunday, we got a breakfast sandwich and breakfast burrito. The food was good, fresh, and reasonably priced. I would have tried a cinnamon roll but they were already out! They were also out of sausage for the breakfast sandwiches, but I was happy with the ham. Very friendly staff, it's seat yourself but they... More

I am not a sweets person but I definitely enjoyed their sticky buns. The staff is quite friendly and welcoming. Breakfast sandwiches are good too. I would recommend this place for brunch in the Freeport area.

We camped in Freeport for four days and found this gem by accident. The sticky bun french toast is excellent. I also loved the egg and ham sandwich on a homemade biscuit. We had breakfast there everyday.

We walked in for breakfast to an empty restaurant. We were greeted with a friendly hello but the young man that took our order was cocky, smug, and arrogant. We ordered on breakfast sandwich and one greek omelet; neither of which were anything that would lure us back. Once is enough of this place.

I liked the atmosphere as well as the local art on the wall. I am deducting a star because when we went in for food (around... More

This is a charming little café open for breakfast and lunch just off the main street in Freeport. The sign is on the front of the building, but the entrance is down a flight of stairs on the side street. The owner was behind the counter and cooking as well, she is very friendly and accommodating for our requests. The... More
