Breakfast and bakery are both OK

Had breakfast the other day which was OK. The eggs were overdone and the fries were not hot. You had to ask for coffee refills.The pastery did look good.

They serve breakfast & Lunch. I've eaten both. The baked goods are superior and coffee is decent. They have a case full of goodies and will bake custom cakes. Yum! The last lunch I had was a tuna melt. The tuna salad includes capers which I dislike.

If I could have chosen no stars I would have! Worse customer service I have ever received! Paid $65 for a birthday cake for my son. I asked for a Teenage Mutant ninja turtle cake and the colors were completely off. The person I spoke to was sympathetic and said that she would have the manager call me to fix... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is location right on the Common. Breakfast is subpar, wait staff is rude, and the whole place is dated and dirty. Prices are too high for the quality you are getting.

Very pricey, unclean, and most of the items lack flavor. The breakfast burrito, for example, is so bland, filled with potatoes rather than eggs, etc. Such a good location, but such disappointing food! Poor Natick Center.

Breakfast and lunch, baked goods, it's all really good but not cheap. Not outrageous though for what you get.

The food is usually good, although portions can be small. Prices are way too high for this place. It is not fancy but the prices certainly are.

Delicious spinach quiche, good quality but bland toasted cheese sandwich, and the price was reasonable. Apparently you order at the counter and find a seat, and then listen for your dish to be called. The teenage cashier needed a bit more training, but eventually things were sorted out. Watching diners from two other tables debate whose dish was the one... More

This place is blessed with a great location, there's no way it would still be in business if it weren't. I got a half sandwich/salad lunch special, with a greek salad. The salad had no dressing. I asked for the dressing and was told "OH! you wanted dressing????". I was handed a package of Ken's greek salad dressing..... Another time... More

What a great place for a sandwich and coffee. Service is joyful and the atmosphere is great. Prices are also very reasonable.
