We enjoyed house granola and a special of pancakes, avocado and eggs- an amazing portion- and of course, house coffee. Perhaps too much sugar in the granola? Wide selection on menu, but not too much! Good location, easy parking.

We have been here several times for breakfast, and the service and food get worse each time we come. Yesterday will be our last visit. The coffee was cold and bitter (which is the worst thing for a breakfast place). It took us 3 requests before our coffees were replaced - still bitter, but at least warm. Our food took... More

I was so delighted to discover this restaurant on my vacation last year, that I made it a priority to return again when visiting the area this year. What a gem. I love everything about this place. A quaint local spot, this restaurant appeals to me on so many levels. First, I will say that the owner is very friendly... More

This little cafe with its breakfast specialties was so highly recommended and I was really looking forward to the famous "steamed" eggs on this busy Sunday morning. We were a party of six...a big number for this tiny space, but we found a table in the corner and all squeezed in, excited to try some of the healthy options on... More

Welcomed on arrival, despite the cafe being busy. The menu is extensive with many interesting and unusual choices. We went for breakfast today, which was a busy Saturday morning, but we were served promptly and the food was fresh and delicious and nicely presented. Much of the food is organic and locally sourced. Highly recommended and seems to be popular... More

Stumbled unexpectedly on this small eatery. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and the best fresh salad I have had since arriving in the USA over a week ago. Looking forward to trying out the breakfasts.

We stopped in to The Wild Plum on the second day of our vacation just to grab a quick pastry and coffee. The blackberry raspberry coffee cake was divine. Along with a great cup of coffee, it made the perfect quick breakfast. The items were so lovely, we returned the third day of our vacation. We sat down this time... More

I used to stop here almost every day, when my offices were up the street. The pastries are so fresh, and the coffee is great. And, just a few blocks to walk Downtown...

I don't normally bother with negative reviews but I feel compelled upon this occasion. The a Wild Plum looked great from the outside so we thought we would see if we could grab a take out coffee to walk into town with. This seemed to be a task beyond the organisational skills of the cast of thousands serving behind the... More

We went to this "little gem" on a recommendation....no disappointment! I had the "special" of Peach Pancakes.....fresh peaches caramelized and poured over the stack of pancakes...not too sweet. We also had a wonderful Mediterranean Omelet and a BOWL of Latte. Wish we lived closer to enjoy breakfast here more often!
