Fast, delicious lunch

My fiance and I were exploring the shops downtown on a rainy Saturday, and decided to pop in for a quick lunch at the Green House Cafe. We each ordered the veggie sandwich and some coffee and were surprised by how BIG the sandwiches were! Great service, good coffee and a welcoming little cafe.

Today tried the breakfast and was more than pleased. We normally go for lunch as the quality of the food and the service are consistently great. Not fancy, but always clean and appealing and the prices are very good. The homemade soups and muffins are always great. Go try it.

There are days, especially one the winter hits, where there is nothing quite like a great cup of soup and a sandwich and the Green House Cafe always satisfies. I always opt for the half sandwich and soup combo and I am always satisfied with the result. I wouldn't say they have anything that is super unique or innovative, but... More

Everything positive that everyone else already said.... it's true! We actively went looking for this café based on the other reviews and we were not disappointed. We mistakenly arrived ten minutes before closing time, but they gladly served us anyway. And were kind about it (never making us feel like we were keeping them or in the way, etc.)! And... More

I have to say the trip advisor family did not let us done....this was a perfect spot for (we had breakfast) we had the eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast. This simple breakfast was excellent.

Loved their chicken noodle soup. It was great for a cool day. The menu was full of great options - I had a hard time picking something. My wife had the tuna salad sandwich and really enjoyed it too. Will definitely go back.
