“Unique hometown cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Why eat at a chain when you can get great meal and coffee?One of the best lunches in town and good wine and beer. Always take out of town guests there.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Dinner here was disappointing. We ordered homemade chips as an appetizer--small serving and not impressive. Then neither of the meals we ordered were prepared as described in the menu. I think they were out of ingredients and just used what they had. Both were okay at best. I wanted to support a local business instead of a local business but they did not get the job done with this meal.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The food was good, but a bit overpriced I believe. This is not your small town café, more of a "yuppie" café with menu and atmosphere. The Ruben sandwich was fine.

“Great small town cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a great little small town cafe where the owners seem to know everyone's name. It is not a fancy restaurant, but it is charming. The walls are decorated in a classic cafe style. Sunday brunch simply means that you can order from either their breakfast menu or lunch menu during brunch hours.

When we ate there, the toast was a little overdone, so when the manager came to make his routine visit and enquire if everything was ok, I asked my wife if she would like some fresh toast, She said no - that's ok, so I said we were fine. The manager, however, without our even asking, brought fresh toast. It seems that they actually care about customer satisfaction. That, along with the quality of the food, impressed me. I am glad to give them an excellent recommendation.

“Epic-ness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I tried this properly named "Epic Sandwich" as it was featured as a daily special.

Ingredients: breaded chicken breast, swiss cheese, BACON, roasted red pepper sauce, lettuce, tomatoe, & purple onion complete on a soft kaiser roll equals EPIC-NESS.

For the side I chose the sweet potato fries which are divine with honey mustard sauce (sounds weird I know, but dont knock it til' you try it)

The atmosphere is lovely for whatever mood you are in. The first room if you are feeling friendly, lots of locals are always coming in and out. If you sit at the bar you will end up chatting with someone. Or the bistro room it provides a bit more privacy (think quite little table in the corner but an entire room) complete with a wine cellar that used to be a bank vault still with lock and key. Saved my favorite room for last. If you are wanting to get away from the world sit out on the patio and watch the life of a small town pass you by. Sip a Blue Moon, Vino, or Coffee and eat some mighty fine cookin' because you will be back for more.
