Apparently breakfast is where this cafe really shines and a look at the breakfast menu did make me want to come back. Nevertheless we came for dinner and it was just fine. My husband ordered (at the counter) the Mac and cheese, which was delicious but nothing really ruins Mac and cheese, right? The portion was large and it came... More

Walked in and wasn't sure how to order or where to go and it took a few minutes for someone to come tell us. Wasn't a big deal since they were not very busy and they were helpful. Had the Mosquito Benedict and it was amazing! Cheesy grits on the side and they were to die for!! My husband had... More

Looked like a wonderful patio outside, but we were caught in the rain. Order at the counter, meals cheerfully arrived. We had a grilled salmon plate and chinese chopped grilled chicken salad. Both were very good. Am looking forward to breakfast there, which I understand is outstanding.

Great breakfast. Breakfast bowl is so good and the grits were cheesy and savory. The homemade corned beef tacos were a bit disappointing--a bit short on flavor. But, the lemonade dream cake is indeed a dream. Yum! We went two days in a row!

This is one of my favorite spots for lunch. Never a let down, that's for sure. Their sandwiches and salads are yummy. I think my favorite has to be the Pesto Pasta. It always hits the spot and offers plenty of vegetarian options. If you're in a hurry, you might want to call your order in ahead to pick up,... More

As many reviews indicate, the atmosphere and "look" is great. Trendy, basic, pleasant. The clientele was upscale, though mostly informally dressed. There were two downsides. First, my expensive burger was substandard--dried out and over cooked even though I had ordered it medium. Taste was bland. Others at my table also found their food less than impressive. Second, the service was... More

OK, first timers, when you go in grab a menu on a stand in plain site, make your selection and then place order at the counter, pay there and then find a seat and they will bring your food to you. Don't forget your napkin, silverware and water at the counter or else you'll have to go back. We met... More

The eggs Benadicts were fabulous. Came with tender grilled shrimp and a savory muffin. The service was great, there on a Sunday afternoon. The waiters were very helpful and pleasant. Nice environment. The tea is served in a rather unique way. The apple salad was lovely and very flavorful.
