This place is wonderful. Excellent service and it serves the most delicious, fresh food. It is also very clean- the water glass are spotless- not one dishwasher spot on them!

This is one of my favorite breakfast/lunch places in the area. Their soups and salads are outstanding. Looking forward to the gazpacho this summer...best in town! They are now open for dinner...however I was not as pleased with that menu as with breakfast and lunch menus.

We've been here many times. Our favorites: Sweet potato quesadilla. Salmon salad. Egg salad - in fact I think I gained 10 pounds my last pregnancy from egg salad sandwiches and key lime bars picked up from the deli. Always fresh and great waitstaff.

The menu is somewhat eclectic, and the setting is very pleasant. Fresh bakery is available, and breakfast is served as well. This is not a place for those in a hurry, so plan a relaxing lunch here in a an upscale environment.

The service is fast and the food is fresh and wonderful. The salads i have ordered have always had fresh greens with no limp lettuce and I have found in other restaurants. The portions are generous but you may want to save room for one of their fresh baked desserts. The have a bakery attached to the restaurant and everything... More

Our group of 7 aduolts plus a toddler had a great brunch there recently. There was something on the menu for everyone and each dish was fresh, well cooked and delicous. My waflle with fresh fruit was fantastic. Can't wait to go there again,. Would recommend to everyone. The owner even stopped by to check everyone was happy.
