A great stop on your trip to Door County or Cedarburg!!

This is a great spot!! We were recommended to go here from a shop owner in Cedarburg. We were staying in Mequon during our stay. This is a place we will visit again. You have to get their Ruby Slipper instead of your normal mimosa. It was AMAZING!! It has rhubarb syrup, tart cherry grenadine, and... read more

Thank you for the kind words! I am happy you like the coffee/espresso (roasted locally by Valentine Coffee in Tosa) and the quick ease of the deli. We are so pleased with our expansion of the deli, and I am personally thankful that you let us know how much you enjoyed it. Be well! More

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.
