The food was really good and they have a great variety of teas on offer. I personally recommend the red chai tea - just amazing! The veggie burger was fantastic with very generous portions.

Local ingredients and a casual, but fun atmosphere. Good quality food and great, consistent service that caters to the foodie crowd. This is our favorite restaurant in downtown Palmer.
