The lady that took my order went out of her way to be as rude to me as possible not sure what I did to make her mad. But she sure let me now that she didn't have anytime to deal with me. On top of that I have been out of the country for 2 years and it's my... More

We happened in during a festival event, my wife interested in coffee. Upon seeing a menu, we decided to give it a try for lunch instead of a funnel cake. We had two items that were simply outstanding: homemade quiche and scrumptious sandwich on homemade bread. There were many other savory items ... next time!

There were only five items on the chalkboard to choose from for lunch and I believe that's a good thing. I had the artichoke on flat bread and it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! The artichoke hearts were combined with 3 cheeses, fresh tomatoes, sprouts, and then grilled like a panini. The iced coffee was very... More

Seemed a little out of place for the area. Owners made nice dishes. Catered to our daughter who is vegan. We are vegetarian and we had no problem finding a meal here. Ate several meals here and all of them were excellent.

Becca, the owner of this coffee shop, is now serving soup and sandwiches. However, that term does not nearly describe the delicious food prepared by this chef. I had lunch with six friends there recently, and everyone raved about their food.

Charming, warm, clean, and offers a variety of other local wares and farmers market items for sale as well. Shop even offers a selection of wines as well. The owner makes all the desserts and baked good from scratch and it's clear she excelled at culinary school. This place knows how to make excellent coffee and sources the best beans... More

Always good, never disappointed! You will find good coffee, made to your specific needs and excellent baked goods. Great variety and quality in the sweets . . And the bread is most, most excellent!

The baked goods at the cafe are amazing- from the biscotti to the muffins. Becca, the owner, bakes all her own pastries and it is evident that she knows what she's doing!
