“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

It was clear these guys are passionate about their food, with great enthusiasm we were told about they're specials including a wonderful salmon dish which I had - fabulous. The ambience is casual and relaxed, and its the perfect way to wind down after a busy day.

“Fresh, Real Food, prepared and served with a conscious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

When we came for our Sunday Dinner, initially I felt that the options were limited. However, upon our ordering, as the food was served, my opinion changed immediately. Kate, the chef, procures the most incredible ingredients - most organic veggies/fruits and grass-fed/non-GMO fed meats, as local as possible. With these ingredients she properly integrates them into beautiful appetizers, sides, entrees and desserts. From vegan to paleo, all customers will be satisfied!

“Creative delicious stop just off I-5”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Stopped by on a road trip (thanks Yelp!) and was wonderfully surprised! An excellent cafe with really creative food. The four of us ate outdoors, sitting out on the sidewalk so we could give our dogs a break from the car. One of us ordered the butter beans with eggs and it was fantastic. I had the grilled eggplant sandwich, which was served piping hot with hand-cut fries (to die for!) along with home-made ketchup and garlic aioli. My wife ordered the macro bowl and (in my opinion) it was too flavorful to be truly macrobiotic.
The server was friendly and helpful. Service a little slow since we wanted to get back on the road, but she was working alone to be fair.
Definitely worth a stop if your driving by. Even more so if you live in the area.

“New Year's Eve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The duck was fabulous, as was my partner's prime rib. Service excellent for a small town restaurant. Pris vis, with a nice champagne. Salads were very nice, fresh.
