“Adorable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

An adorable little restaurant with some great choices. High quality food, clearly made by people who care about providing a good experience. Our waitress was a little surly, but adequate. We ate on the porch which had a charming view of their vegetable garden. It was a little chilly the morning we ate there, but it was enclosed and had heaters to keep it comfortable. If I lived in the area, I'd definitely make a habit of eating here.

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The best frittata I have ever enjoyed! This is a funky little place on the edge of the downtown business district worth trying.

“Great Light Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We were running late, after a day of traveling, and didn't really want a big meal. Willing to splurge a bit, but not too much.....and this really fit the bill. Had our two boys with us, ages 7 and 9. They had an unwritten kids menu that the waitress told to us. And they have a lighter fair menu (and cheaper....prices and portions scaled down). I had the Camembert which was incredible. My wife had soup, one of the boys had Calamari and the other an incredible (and not small) cheese pizza. Got a piece of pie afterwards too. You could spend a lot here and I assume get a great meal for it. But was really glad to spend a reasonable amount (with tip bill was around $55), and have some smaller portions of very high quality food.

This is a meal I will probably remember for a long time.
