Crimson is, by far, the best place for lunch in town. Delicious paninis, salads and seasonal soups....all made using the freshest ingredients. Seasonal soups are home made from scratch. Ordering half sandwich/half salad combo is perfect. Wonderful wine selection and outdoor patio to enjoy. Fun gifts and delicious espresso bar as well! Super friendly staff.

In the summer you can eat inside or out. Its a little house with the bottom floor as the café. Nice wait staff and fast, good cook. A great selection of salads, sandwiches, sometimes soup which I wish they had year round as an option. Oh yes and coffee-they also have that. They also have some nice wall art, scarves... More

This is such a great place to spend some quality time with anyone. The food and drinks are yummy, the atmosphere is so charming, and the girls that work there are great. Can't think of one thing that I don't like about it!

This delightful little cafe is located in a house with a converted first floor off the main route through town and also away from the bypass. The decor is attractive. They have a small gift shop to one side. The food was very good and nicely presented. We enjoyed the half-sandwich/half-salad combinations. The sandwiches were on ciabatta and panini. The... More

Twice in the last two weeks we had lunch. What a relaxing pleasant experience in this bistro style converted old home. Tables close together, lots of camaraderie with fellow diners if desired. Now to the food- coffee house menu teas, lattes, coffees, smoothies. Lunches are soup, salad and/or soups. I had brie and apple w/ turkey on cranberry wild rice... More

Stopped based on previous reviews for lunch. Glad we did, food good and fun setting. Staff friendly, parking was a little bit of work but stop was worth.

Just stopped in for lunch based on previous reviews. Glad we did. Really hit the spot on a cold wet day. Food great and service very friendly. Parking is a little work but worth it.
