Used the GPS to locate a cafe for breakfast and found this little gem. Very nice, good selection and great food. The staff were friendly and courteous. We had a 1-year old with us and you know how messy they can be. Waitress distracted him a bit so mom could eat, and even he had a good time.

A go to place for all occasions! A perfect place to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and food. So far all the different lunches I have tried have been delicious and plentiful-(always a doggie bag for home) The chicken salad is excellent as was the pizza and salad (more than enough to share). Morning orange juice is fabulous! Great place -... More

My wife and I took my mom here on Sunday for breakfast. My wife has been before this was my and my moms first visit. We had a ten minute or so wait but if I went back I would wait again and longer if I had to the food was worth it. When you walk in they have coffee... More

Arrived for lunch at noon. The restaurant was busy but not overwhelmingly so. We were greeted promptly and in a friendly and welcoming manner by our waitress. We placed our orders - maple turkey salad and the turkey avocado wrap. Just as I began thinking that it was taking a long time to receive our food, the owner approached our... More

I really have come to love this restaurant for breakfast/brunch. The menu is a nice change form the typical breakfast fare of bacon and eggs. Highly recommend.

Having previously enjoyed a great breakfast at The Purple Finch my wife and I decided to return for lunch. Although my wife found the Southwest Corn Chowder very tasty it was too spicy for her taste buds. Instead, she found the Loaded Potato soup very tasty and soothing. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bruschetta Burger, a great combination of tasty Angus... More

The California Benedict is fresh and tasty. The salads are superb. Sandwiches make a meal for two. Sweet potato dots with maple syrup...yum! Staff is friendly and accomodating. This is a great spot for breakfast or lunch, with friends, or at the counter solo.

The owner/chef is professionally trained and truly imaginative. The originality of some of the dishes here blows me away. The 603 sandwich is fantastic, the sweet potato dots are scrumptious and the fresh pretzels were a great starter. So much to say about this place. I found a neat site called iHeartDining where you can learn all about them and... More

We had breakfast here Memorial Day weekend on the way to the lake and all of our plates were left clean. Great food with a lot of healthy options on the menu. We will definitely return as we've had fantastic lunches here as well!

This was a lovely surprise. An interesting menu, very friendly and accommodating waitstaff. Quite popular on the weekend, little less crowded on during the week. But the food is fresh and hot. Reasonably priced, conveniently located.
