Great food, eclectic and fun music for dinner and brunch. Good place to hang out in downtown Lee. Very delicious sweet crepes made us come back for Sunday brunch the next day. The breakfast crepes and sandwiches were also great.

We were heading back to the Mass Pike on our way to Boston and were looking for a late breakfast. This place in the center of Lee is in a funky old building which is part of its charm. The menu features a large variety of crepes and egg sandwiches. The ones we had were very good. You order at... More

I went with my family to visit Lee while staying in Hancock, we found this cute cafe with organic pastries and a bohemian atmosphere. The cafe was delicious and my daughter's latte was a work of art. She loved it and we did too. They sale crepes too. The service was very good, the staff was very pleasing. You should... More

We visited that location twice during our week end vacation. The first was on a Sunday and did not realize that they had music starting at 11am. We were very happy with the singer and the food. We found several good restaurants in the area but this was one of our favorites.

The food was good, but service was slow and I was served before the table had been cleaned from the previous diner. The menu offered organic fruits and veggies and everything was made to order. They seemed a bit disorganized, but it all worked in the end.

We were travelling on I90 and spent a night at Lee and discovered this fabulous little cafe for breakfast. It's often hard to find healthy food when on the road so this place was a fantastic find. Food was amazing , great coffee , friendly staff and great atmosphere. Loved it!

You walk in and order at a counter. The staff is very good with their menu and were very helpful when as newcomers, we had mabpny questions. Personally I was so pleased to eat a tasteful meal with my limitations with food sensitivities. I told them what I couldn't eat, they offered me choices, Woot woot.
