“Close, but no cigar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Hit this cafe after a hike to Adam's Falls. The blieberry muffin was outstanding and my wife raced about the " dirty chai"- espresso in chai tea, what a concept! The pastries we took for the next day did not fair so well- dry, stale and tasteless. Eat them the first day and you're golden! A nice stopping point after a day of hiking or shopping around town. Wife also loved the seating area with comfy leather chairs, little tables and eclectic decor.

“Good quick breakfast fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you are looking just for a bagel or burrito breakfast sandwich and a latte this is a nice little place to go. They are open most of the day as I recall and have lunch items as well. There is Wi-Fi if that is important to you and various seating. Located near the center of town close to the lake on a side street.

“solid mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

The deli we wanted to go was closed for winter. Not knowing where to go, we entered this cafe. It looked cozy and nice. however the food was pretty awful. We had sandwiches and cappuccino. Everything was solid mediocre. The bread for the sandwich was ultra soft, seasoning pretty bad. Not the fresh, homemade, gourmet type of cafe.

“Overpriced!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Had coffees and pastries. It would have been great to get what we ordered! Had a scone before from here and it was so good. This time I was served some sort of cake. A cinnamon roll should not cost $4 no matter where you are unless it fills the plate!

“Good breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Only open for breakfast and lunch - free wi fi. Orders are taken at the counter and you can eat in or take out. Many locals came in which for me is always a good sign. The bakery is actually down a side street behind a bistro, while the sign hangs out front. Just walk around the corner towards the lake.
