We went for lunch and they have great sandwiches and soups. However, their weekend and special occasion menus are just as good. It has an intimate atmosphere and have great servers. If you' re looking for something other than a burger for lunch and like a nice alternative, then this is the place for you.

This was a "there's this, but then there's that" kind of evening, where the positives seemed to be consistently offset with negatives that marred the overall experience. Quaint atmosphere - but a bit crowded with the tables being somewhat on top of one another. Entrees sounded good on paper - but were only was "OK" (could have used some seasoning),... More

This is a nice little cafe to have a light lunch or coffee and... I have been here several times and am always delighted to return. Some nice homemade desserts and lunch plates. It has a nice cozy atmosphere and outside seating for nicer weather.

I had the fresh salmon salad, best salmon I've had in I don't know how long! My daughter had the grilled turkey panini-the apple chutney and carmelized onions made the sandwich out of this world! But the thing I enjoyed most, was the bite I had of my husband's TENNESSEE HOT BROWN. Just try it, you'll be hooked.

Always crowded at lunch. Better than average menu: soup, salad, sandwich and pasta. Average size portions and prices. Cute as can be. Right on the square tucked into a corner. This is NOT a meat and three (although I love those too). It's a nice place for lunch. Also they have candy and several cakes and pies to choose from.

We had the best mocha latte ever and my son loved the carrot cake. Quaint cafe on a darling town square.

The food, ambiance, and service make this quaint cafe a must. The portions are enough for me to always need a to go box, so although it costs a bit more to eat there, it is worth the extra couple of dollars that you might otherwise be spending at a drive-thru. They have a selection of food that you won't... More

I had the turkey club that the waitress recommended. It had a great mayo and apple chutney on it. It was served on a most delicious foccacia bread. This was a great and different sandwich, which pleased me. I don't go to a restaurant for a typical sandwich I can make at home. My daughter had chicken marsala that was... More

Wonderful cafe, the food and service was excellent very reasonably priced especially for the quality of what you get. Enjoyed sitting outside and seeing the sights of the town square has a very homey and Old Town feel. Can't wait to come back.
