We stopped in this little cafe to have lunch and were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the food very nice.

“Can only be described as a joke!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We visted this cafe for our first coffee of the day based on reviews, expecting to get a great coffee.....all i can say is I hope it was just an off morning! We order a double espresso, a tea and date slice. This is what we got served at the counter: large mug of filter coffee, chocolate slice and my espresso served in the glass cup they'd been using all morning on the coffee machine....gross! On the 3rd attempt after they found a clean cup and cleaned the machine I got a luke warm espresso. The mug of coffee was switched for tea as was the slice! More attention to training and detail required.

“Going downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The coffee, breakfast muffins and baked goods are all OK but this place desperately needs a remodel. My brother-in-law swears that he will never return because it is a 'dump'. Hopefully the new owners will make some upgrades.

Hello,
Thanks for your review. As you know we recently took over The Brimm August 1st. We are slowly working our way through cleaning and upgrades. I appreciate your honesty, and if you have any remodeling suggestions please feel free to get back to us. Our back room has recently been painted and we have a selection of board games to enjoy by the fireplace on fall afternoons. Yours in hospitality, Teresa

“Very Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

About a block west of the main road in downtown. Open at 7am M-F and 8am on weekends they serve a great breakfast. The coffee here is excellent (everyone in our family remarked how good it was) and the decor is very warm and inviting. Highly recommended!
