Cute view, decent food

We went here on a whim looking for breakfast one morning. I really enjoyed my eggs Benedict, but all in all this was a good breakfast place not a great one.

We stopped on a Sunday morning when other restaurants were overflowing and had long waits to get a table. We got a great table out on the porch and service was excellent. I had the quiche and my husband had an omelet. We both had plenty to eat and it was very tasty.

We went for breakfast on a rainy morning at the Summer Kitchen. Our food was average, but nothing special. It wasn't the nicest restaurant at all... in fact the men's bathroom has to be accessed from outside the restaurant. I would pass on this restaurant and go to the Chef's Hat a couple blocks down instead.

we had a great breakfast here. The garden environment was very nice - butterflies and hummingbirds - and we all enjoyed our varied choices. It was a great start to the day.

We went here on a Sunday morning and we were seated right away. The service was prompt and friendly. The four of us all ordered different items and we were all happy with our selections.

The soup bar was something new and very nice. There were 5 different soups to choose from - a cup is included with all meals. Other than that, the service was and food were average.

Brightly surrounded by brilliantly colored flowers, we were pleasantly surprised with a delicious breakfast. Enjoyed the morning egg scramble substituting fruit for potatoes. The freshly made salsa complimented the equally fresh veggies in the eggs. A first for me was alfalfa sprouts on top of the eggs, but I liked it. Better still was not waiting forever for a seat.

Needed a bite to eat between hikes so looked this place up. I read good things, so we stopped in for a quick bite to try it out. The outside of the place is very cute & inviting, but the prices we saw on the menu & the food we saw on the tables around us it just didn't look... More

Ordered some food for take away. Had the lasagna which was very flavorful, one of the best I've had. Would certainly order that again for sure. Also sampled the tomato dill soup which was unique though a bit thick. My mom had the cabbage soup which she thought was good, but again slightly too thick. Would love to try the... More

We drove by this restaurant several times mentioning how cute and clean it looked. We decided to have breakfast there the following day. The food was delicious and well prepared. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive.
