Love this place. The atmosphere is cool. Food is awesome. Creative menus. Check out the daily specials. French onion soup is fantastic but pricey. All other soups are great. Gets very busy. Try the muffins!!!

We were just in TC for a couple of nights and stopped here for breakfast the first morning. We had been here before but forgotten how good it was. The fresh baked goods are great. So much so we took home a loaf of multi-grain bread. My wife had the baked oatmeal and a side of bacon. I had the... More

The Green House tasty spinach salad had the best chicken on a salad we have had in recent memory, and the Green house dip delicious roast beef sandwich with mushrooms and cheese was great. The only disappointment was the bag of regular potato chips served... More

We stopped for breakfast. Upon entering you are greeted with a very hip, eclectic decor. Art lines the walls. A mix of photography and customer renderings. Each table is lined with Kraft paper and a small bucket of crayons awaits your artistry. The Food is excellent down home hearty fare. Give this cafe a try, you won't be disappointed.

In town planning a wedding and we were beat. The staff was so thoughtful, jumped at getting us off our feet and coffee in hand. Even got a hug!!! Ham sandwich was fine, nothing special, but bread was gigantic. The chicken cherry salad served on croissant was perfectly wonderful!

I had my first "ok" experience at Green House today. I ordered a Caesar salad and got a Caesar Salad Sandwich. Although the bread on the sandwich was real tasty, the cut lettuce tasted like it was from a bag and had that taste cut lettuce gets when it's been sitting in the fridge for a while. :( With all...

This is truly one of the nicest diners/dining spots for lunch. We have never tried breakfast here...but love their lunches. They offer 7 kinds of homemade soups daily and offer each with a side of a muffin or bread. I have not yet had a soup here that I didn't like. All are done and done very well. I also... More

Have eaten both breakfast and lunch at this cafe. Never fails to be amazing! Soup (any kind) is tasty and filling and the sandwiches are made with fresh meats and veggies. Try the turkey wrap....mmmmmm.
