Good for the soul and your belly!

Such a delightful place! Tasty food with a smidge of flair, excellent coffee, great service, and a lovely, artistic ambiance inside and out. I've only been here for breakfast, but definitely plan to be back for lunch.

This is why we have Tripadvisor, because we are all looking for that off-the-beaten-path little place with local charm that serves up great and unique dishes. The breakfast sandwiches are different than any you have had. The French Toast was great also. Coffee was good, service ok, location challenging. We stopped for breakfast one day....and then the next day also... More

It's totally worth it to get off the beaten path and visit here. Besides the wonderful food, there is unique art and atmosphere. It's not just a place to get a cup of coffee or food. This place is a gift for your soul as well!

We found this via trip advisor. Super cute place. Nice bluegrass music playing softly. Cool patio with grapevine shade and a small play area nearby for the kids. You can walk through the yard while you finish your coffee and visit the ponies. Excellent coffee too!

This place is awesome. The atmosphere is cozy on the inside, and the gardens outside have some well visited bird feeders. They have great coffee and amazing food. I recommend the stuffed French toast with the lemon sauce, and a Croton Crawler. They also have a very tasty grilled cheese that you can add tomato and pesto to. They only... More

Went there on recommendations from others who visited the area. Had eggs Benedict with the café mocha. They were both fabulous, service is also really nice.

Been driving by this neat little place for years and never stopped. Finally popped my head in for coffee and discovered an amazing place. Only had a frozen coffee and a muffin, but I really loved the menu. Can't wait to eat here. Totally cool hippie vibe in the place.

Although it is a little out of the way, it's worth finding. The outside is misleading. Don't let it fool you. Walk in the door and prepare to be enchanted. You will be heartily welcomed, invited to your choice of seats and then learn the days special specials while giving your drink order. From the menu or the menu board,... More
