“Nice downtown spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

An ideal location to meet for breakfast or lunch. Food is always good. We arrived just in time for breakfast. The three-egg omelet is huge! Very delicious.

“Amazing soups!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

My husband and I stopped by this place twice for quick lunch and we were delighted both times. There Red Onion Soup and vegetarian soup were amazingly tasty. We will come back if we visit Racine again.

“Lunch Over Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I have been here for breakfasts and lunches and must say I prefer their lunches. A few notes on the breakfast items: every time I order the quiches they are dried out so I have given up on that for good. I have had one of the morning "specials" which happened to be a Door County Cherry Cheese Stuffed French Toast and I'm still dreaming of it...excellent! They have a lot of gourmet choices on the omelets which are the puffy type and are good. You can get some bakery like muffins etc. and a breakfast sandwich although it is a limited menu and don't expect a big platter of food. I feel the lunches though are the main attraction here. Soups, salads and sandwiches have always been very good. I like the fact that you can eat at the outside tables in summer too but the atmosphere indoors is bright and very nice with special touches. You do have to place your own order and they will deliver it to your table.

“Simple fare at reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This downtown spot is great for a quick bite. Their forte is soup, but all of their offerings are good and the prices very fair.
