I’ve live in the area all my life and just found this gem. Excellent flavors and variety. We had the fried artichoke salad and the spinach salad. Both were enough for a meal. The octopus was the most tender I have ever tasted. Not chewy...More

First rate food. Omelets are very, very good - large portions (as is the case with crepes); attentive, pleasant service. Excellent coffee, staff refills. Usually food left to take home - for another meal. Not the lowest cost but reasonable value and excellent quality. Can't...More

Terrific choices for breakfast and lunch. Dinner Tuesday-Sunday. Mimosas were good. Wine choices appeared to be extensive. Showed a lot of imagination in menu options. Can't wait to return again! This cafe is toward the back of The Camp Both indoor and outdoor tables. Look...More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food selections are very out of the ordinary with great taste and imaginative creativity in the preparation. The wine is some of the finest and good prices; ones that you don't see in the grocery store.

Great menu for breakfast or lunch. Omelets, salads, sandwiches--everything looked wonderful. Went for lunch recently with some business colleagues and can't wait to return. Parking is a little limited so you might want to avoid peak times--come early or late.

We visited this restaurant on a quiet Sunday afternoon. There were quite a few choices on the menu. I had a beautifully prepared and presented spinach salad. Lots of interesting fruit choices: fig, apricots, strawberries. Also goat cheese and almonds were plentiful. My husband had...More

Came for early lunch. Good thing, the parking gets horrendous pretty quickly. Love the ambiance. We sat outside taking in the Camp. Small water feature that adds to the auditory ambiance. The service was great. Tried the blueberry french toast and the smothered. Warning: the...More

Pistachio butter. Nutty margarine. Not what I’d expect. But a beautiful collaboration; a culinary fornication. The spread was quite dense and chunky, as if those nuts had just been ground fresh. Unsure of whether I’d taste sweet or savory, I smeared a dollop onto the...More
