This is a fantastic place to stop in for Chai Tea, and probably the very best chocolate cake we have ever had ( Yes - even better than Moms!)

Had a lunch here, which was good but not great. The owner is very accomodating and very nice. She does everything to please the customers incuding special requests. Good ice cream and ice cream drink selections. Sandwichs were average to good.

We always stop here for coffee (latte) on the way out of town. They make a great mocha! They also offer some good sandwiches, fresh baking, and ice cream (and gelato) too! I also booked a zip line tour here which was absolutely amazing!

My wife and I were looking for a place for ice cream, and we weren't disappointed. 16 flavours isn't much but the ice cream was well worth it, big scoops as well which was much appreciated. I had a waffle cone and my wife had the hot fudge sundae both were awesome.

Wanted mocha's from Barkley Cafe but were closed when we arrived. Had pretty good mocha's here and a great selection of assorted baked goods and sandwiches.

This deli had no atmosphere and the coffee was horrible. Decent service. Lots of pre-made sandwiches and baking
