Service was very good, but slow. Food (pastry) was average / bland. Coffee was good but nothing special. Prices are high for what you get. Outdoor seating was great.

Great local and visitor buzz, worth skipping your B and B breakfast. Steel cut oatmeal the best, stuffed bagels almost that good. Fun and food, what a combo!

Friendly, busy place in the morning. Nice selection of baked goods. I had a delicious Mayan Bowl (egg concoction) and coffee.

First visit was for Bread pudding which was huge and delicious. Next visit was for breakfast. The bagels with veggies was huge and good. Sitting outside is great. Hot toddy was delicious.

My husband had the breakfast burrito, which he said was good, and I had the oatmeal with a delicious orange juice. Not cheap but good.

The stodgy Mac and cheese was to die for! We also had the cheesecake and a blueberry muffin which was amazing. The latte was the best I've had in Amercia. We went here twice!

This is a must for coffee lovers; they have organic coffee an their latte's were excellent. Combine it with fresh baked pastry an it was wonderful. We went their every morning of our visit.

Food caters to more take out and quick meals. Don’t go there if you want a traditional sit down breakfast. They cater to more one bowl meals. Bake goods need some attention. They are large but lack flavor.

So sorry we disappointed you. I’m guessing you won’t return but if you do, please don’t hesitate to return anything you don’t like for a refund or exchange.
