Does the title sound too good to be true? It's not! Led by a great couple, this team of baristas and waitresses serve more than just food. They serve inspiration and really CARE about their clients. I use this cafe as an oasis of inspiration for lunch during the week and for breakfast on the weekends.

Had a breakfast that cost a fortune, and was a tiny portion. Definatly not the place to get your moneys worth. Nice decor inside, and friendly staff did make it a slightly more enjoyable experience.

Thank John A
