We ate here because of the reviews and were going to be in the area around lunch time. We walked in and were greeted. We ordered and received our food promptly. I tried the chicken pot pie which was very good. My husband had a sandwich with their homemade pasta salad. He liked the sandwich, but the pasta salad was... More

This place is perfect to meet someone for lunch. They have both friendly staff and a great atmosphere. The sandwiches are unique and interesting and the cookies are a serious temptation every time I walk in the door. Get here early for their pot pie, which is awesome! The salads have shrunken over time, but are still respectable and will... More

no way does this deserve 2nd spot on tripadvisor. it was adequate and not sure where was better in town but nothing special. my breakfast burrito has previously cooked, slightly cold sausage in it. yum... but it was fast, and not overly priced based on its location. didn't see many alternatives.

I eat here every week! Homemade soups change every day with the seasons... hot and cold sandwiches (try the BBQ Mac), great salads (try the Bang Bang), and LOTS of baked goods! Try their breakfasts! Best of all... the friendliest staff in town!!!

First time here and didn't know what to do. Staff helped with menu and it was all good after that. Service was quick and the food was better than I expected.

I stopped here for a late breakfast while shopping at the farmers' market. There were many unique choices, but I chose an egg strata which was very good. I had a bottomless cup of coffee which was quickly refilled when I took my cup back to the serving area. The place was very crowded but they were serving quickly to... More

My mother and I were in Springfield on some family business and were desperately trying to find a nice place to sit down, get out of the heat and have a quick lunch. I am encouraged to see new development in this depressed downtown, but my expectations were set pretty high after reading reviews of the #2 eatery in Springfield.... More

So happy you took the time to review our restaurant, we are a cafe and are very excited about our downtown. We do certainly get busy and often times have a line of people, but work extremely hard to make sure the line moves very quickly. With that comes a bustling sometimes noisy crowd, so we have created separate areas... More
