Sadly it’s closed in August for repairs but a great little spot. Often it can be crowded so time accordingly. Great baked goods, even better coffee. Service is always fast and friendly

Locally owned casual place that serves fresh organic food. Very friendly and accommodating. Took good care of my wife's celiac needs. Also on the lake side of the main road. Would love to have a spot like this to frequent at home.

Somewhat slow service but we had a beautiful lake view and the bagels were well worth the wait. Loved the lox and the salmon cream cheese.
