Yum!!!

Went with 5 other adults. Food was incredible! Service: food took a looooong time. Coffee and water was plentiful but breakfast took a long time. Baked goods were delicious especially sea salt brownie!

We used to go here often. Recently, we had an opportunity to return. What a change! Prices were up by 50% over our last visit a few years ago; service neglect was irritating at best and everything but attentive. My bowl of clam chowder was a cup of chowder and the remainder was sliced, skin-on red potatoes - lots and... More

The food here is really good with a lot of gluten free items. The French dip, soups and hamburgers are incredible. The service is quick and very friendly. There is a bakery counter here with a large assortment of breads, pastries and cookies-also with a large variety of gluten free. We had a great experience at the Calico Cupboard.

Long wait that was completely worth it! Highly recommend this restaurant as part of your Tulip Festival experiences! Best lemon pie in the west!

Food and service are great but there is usually a wait. Desserts are to die for. Thickest chowder I have ever had!

The pastries are the big draw. We haven't been as enthusiastic about the other food. Seating inside or out is pleasant. People are friendly and accommodating. Convenient location.

Oh man, what an all-around great restaurant. The menu is very broad. Service is friendly, fast and competent. The atmosphere is really cool. It has the appeal of early Americana, with brick walls and wooden floors. We were out for a drive on a Saturday afternoon and thought we would stop in for a late lunch/early dinner. The first thing... More

Spouse had a VA appointment this AM and knew she would be hungry afterwards. Our first visit. Great decor in an old building, excellent, fresh food, attentive staff. Had to bring some food home in a doggy bag. Didn't get any baked goods this visit; looked to be delicious. Will be going back.

Our second try for lunch and again disappointed. The place packed with people and super busy. Clam chowder watery, the roast beef sandwich just OK. And we don't like the potato chips!!! Must be the bakery that has made them popular. We should stop and give it a try next time we are in Mt. Vernon.
