“Amazing food - decent cupcakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My mom, aunt, sister, and I visited this establishment for lunch on Saturday. Three of us got the caprese salad and one got a turkey Panini. We all loved our meals! The tomatoes for the salad were delicious and local. Everything in our meals was fresh. The presentation of our lunch was impressive for a small restaurant. I would definitely visit this restaurant for another meal! I split a Smores cupcake with my sister for dessert. The bottom had graham crackers which were a little dry, but the center had a delicious chocolate truffle. It was good, but I had a better cupcake while I was in Gettysburg.

“OK -- not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The cheesecake was good, not great. The coconut macaroons were so dry, they were hardly edible. The staff was very friendly and nice.

“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

From a local's perspective (and past DC resident), the ingredients are excellent (no hydrogenated fats) and taste is very good. I'd give the bread, however, a 2.5 rating. Cake, cup cake, cookies, etc. are great. The cheesecake is phenomenal. I look forward to trying their new lunch menu.
