We took our guests from Germany to Ventana Coffee House for breakfast.....We sat there for 20 MINUTES before anyone even acknowledged us.Don't understand why, since they were not even busy! Breakfast was average.....It is a charming place, but because the food is average and the service so poor, we will not be going back....Our guests from Germany were not impressed!

9 of us ladies had an amazing dinner at Ventana!! The Spinach dip app was amazing! I had the New Orleans chicken pasta and garlic pita bread and it was very good! The service was very fast and pleasant and the staff was incredibly friendly. We can't wait to go back. Thank you!

Interesting atmosphere in an old 5 & dime store. Menu has lots of offerings. I chose my favorite sandwich...a Reuben. It was excellent. But, the thing that makes this place stand out is that the owners are outstanding bakers. Their cakes and pies are off the end of the chart.

We ate here on a Friday night w/ 3 children and 2 adults. 2 of the 3 kids had spaghetti and the other had alfredo and each one of them ate every single bite, which is saying something w/ our family. The other half enjoyed the American Burger and I chose their Chicken Alfredo. All the dishes were delicious and... More

My wife wanted to go out and eat and with me just getting off work didn't want the hustle and bustle of going to Liberty. I had eaten here before and asked her if she wanted to try it. The waitstaff is some of the most attentive we have ever seen. We ordered a bottle of Wine and two entrees.... More

Ate here for lunch and we had chicken salad and a burger. The chicken dish was good but not exceptional and is served on a croissant. The burger was tasty but the patty was way too fatty and there was a pool of grease on the plate. Their Italian wedding soup was very good and the service was very friendly... More

Food and service was good. Love the old building and the care the owners took to restore it. Price was good for the amount of food served.

We here having trouble deciding and she made some fantastic suggestions. She also made a marvelous peach Long Island Tea (not for those faint of heart!). We ordered the... More
