Always fresh and great service!

Good food, local farms, wonderful employees, and love the samples!! Atmosphere is pleasant and you can even sit on the other side where it's much more quiet. You can bring your computer and get some work done also.

The people are not overly friendly. The food is okay, but nothing amazing. I have been here a few times, and each time I have walked away with the same exact feeling.

While renting a lake home we ate here 3 times this past summer and enjoyed all our meals. But the best thing here (in addition to the great sandwiches & unusual pizzas) are the delicious pastries. I had the best ginger molasses cookie ever! They also have fabulous ice cream treats that are unlike any you've ever tasted. You really... More

Great pizza, these people get the crust right! Not a pre-made frozen or food service product. This is the real deal, cooked perfect every time..

Stopped by the bakery on the way to coast guard festival last week and ordered the last 4 cinnamon rolls left. If you remember the old Eds Bread on Leonard NW in GR theses are those made by the same baker, Orin. Also tried the San Francisco sour dough bread that was as good as the bread we had while... More

Even if you sit down and get served you have to go get your own coffee. My husband likes cream with his coffee. Well the big pitcher of cream was empty. I went and asked the waitress for cream and she indicated she was too busy and to get it from the bakery. Long line at the bakery, hubby comes... More

The homemade soft pretzels are the best! Nice baked goods. Not thrilled with the lunch I had last month. We were told "The chef is experimenting". Rather dry sandwich but won t give up.

Lack of a children's menu, no half sandwich options, charged "split" charge for sharing sandwich with 4 year granddaughter. Spent $30 and they wanted an extra dollar,lol. No communication received after e-mailing my experience to the restaurant.
