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

Not many area breakfast stops in this area. But this one, off the beaten path, is worth searching out. The stuffed French toast is amazing. Served with fresh berries and a lemon curd, it is my favorite, and I have ordered it several times. Another tasty option is the breakfast sandwich. Thinking McDonalds variety? Think again. This is large and... More

We went here for breakfast at the recommendation of friends. It was really fun. Mainly serving locals, this cafe (only open till 3) has a fine menu and a few upscale offerings (such as the baked french toast). Great coffee and a splendid patio. Let the kids use the playground out back and don't miss the ponies! This place is... More

Our table of 5 was very impressed with the ambiance, the chef's detailed description of each course and especially the delicious meal. The staff was welcoming and wanting to meet our needs. Since, most of us were new to the restaurant we were unaware of cash or check policy. This would be helpful to include on the email notice. Wine... More

From the exterior you would not guess what yummy food is served. I liked the variety of options. The service wonderful. This place is worth driving to.
