Kitschy little coffee shop with great food and good service. We went early afternoon on a Sunday and I liked that my husband could get lunch and I could get breakfast. Gluten-free options available.

Fresh food, trendy little cafe. After eating the hotel breakfast 4 days in a row this food was a spiritual experience. It was also cheaper. Staff is super friendly and efficient. They have a big outside seating area on the side. It’s easy to miss.

We stopped by this quaint little cafe for breakfast while visiting the area. Generous portions for a reasonable price. We enjoyed the small portion of fresh fruit that came alongside both of our meals. Very friendly and helpful staff.
