Great place. Tables are well spaced out and menu cover most of what you would want for breakfast or lunch. Service was good and food great. We had the omelette and chicken grilled sandwich. Both were good portion sizes and very tasty.

Went the first day for awesome blueberry scones and then the second for an outstanding chicken salad sandwich on sourdough to-go. Someone else reviewed the peanut butter cookies and the review was right - melt-in-your-mouth! So great. Really friendly staff.
