Sandwich shop carved out of back corner of gift shop (but the food is above average). Was unhappy when menu price was not honored, claimed it was an old menu.

The inside delightfully decorated with a mass of eclectic treasures.

OMG!!! Rich Phillips is a Renaissance man of many true talents. It's easier to say what he cannot do! The food here is delicious, creative and beautiful! The atmosphere is divine especially at Xmas! See the Facebook page for many beautiful and hunger causing pictures! While you're here enjoy a stroll through the garden shop!

We all really enjoyed our food. We bought a selection of the Valentine's Day cupcakes and were very disappointed in them. Very over priced for the quality and taste. Loved looking around the shop and the garden center. The cat was a wonderful surprise too.

My friends and I were on a teachers conference and stumbled into this Cafe for lunch. From the time you walk through the door, you are taken back to a magical time. The owner greeted us with such love and excitement that we had chosen his cafe for lunch. The tables are arranged as part of the the decor amongst... More

Wonderful cafe within a floral shop, nursery, and gift shop. Everything from lobster rolls to egg salad is great. Fair prices and also have cupcakes if you just want a snack. Owners are great and make your visit enjoyable.
