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.

When tavelling from Vancouver BC south, CC is our usual breakfast stop. Latest on a Saturday morning before 9 AM. Early enough to be seated promptly. Coffee is good as is the service. Breakfast entrees are full sized! Had the Bella Omelette (portabello musrooms, fire roasted red peppers and onions with fruit) and the Chicken Sausage Scramble with potatoes. Both... More

I have only gotten pastries to go from here before which were good so we decided to stop for breakfast. It is a cute / quaint location and feels homey. I ordered the banana/coconut pancakes which were Amazing! Plenty of coconut and bananas with a ton of whip cream and a side of syrup and butter. My husband ordered the... More
