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.

Came here twice for breakfast. Make sure you try "The Lox" (if you like salmon) on an everything bagel, it's so good! Also their pumpkin spice latte is pretty tasty. (Not Starbucks quality but close). My SO got the breakfast burrito which was just ok....More
