This is a fun place to come for lunch or breakfast - all prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious and tastes homemade. We made it to one of their grilling nights (every other Friday night) and we sat outside enjoying our food.

I'm a fan of the Big Oak Café and the adjoining Butcher Shoppe. Clearly, this is a family business that prides itself on presenting high-quality products. I choose Big Oak when I want to support local business and eat at a place that is different than the usual chains. Lots of sandwich choices. Wish the portions were a bit larger... More

Often visit here with friends and stay until they close. Great atmosphere. Many unique combinations for sandwiches that are unexpectedly delicious !! Summertime on the patio is a treat I am looking forward to again this year. Love the Harvest Breakfast sandwich and the Meadow Wrap. The pastries and the scones are top notch. Service is always fast and friendly.

After reading reviews and hearing great things we decided to finally try the Big Oak Cafe for lunch. My husband ordered a wrap and I designed my own sandwich. Frankly, neither one of us saw what all the fuss was about. On the plus side, everything was fresh and tasted good. But we felt it was pretty average for the... More

Great little cafe to eat in or take out. I'm picky about my coffee cup and they have all shapes & sizes for you to choose from. Or paper cups if you're not concerned about saving the environment. Love their little pecan buns. Ask to have it warmed with the extra goo poured over. Delightful! Heard they have expanded the... More

If you're shopping at the Butcher Shoppe this is a nice little place to get a cup of coffee, lunch, or a snack. They have Wi-Fi so you can check your iPod or whatever while you're relaxing. There is a TV that you can watch in the other side of the room if you want to catch up on the... More

This place has an interesting menu and I've never had anything there that wasn't really really good. It can get crowded as it is not especially large although bigger than it used to be if you haven't been in for awhile.

Have had breakfast and lunch here often. The food is always good. Service can be a bit slow at times, especially if there is a line. Like the outdoor seating.

The Big Oak is really popular, but I don't get it. The food and service are average, and way, way overpriced. Many better options close by. Cakes are terrible as well. No matter how many times I visit or eat something from there, I am puzzled by what makes it so popular and trendy. Go elsewhere unless you want the... More

Great little place. Great flavors. Great Service. When you are finished be sure to get your groceries at the Butcher Shoppe! Friendly staff. And very clean.
