This is tucked away in a courtyard that runs off Atlantic. Food is fresh and delicious. Brewed ice hazelnut coffee was very good.

I found this little cafe accidentally as I was taking a walk in the morning. It is behind some stores in a bit of an alley way and they had a sign out in front so I decided to take a walk over and see what it was all about, while waiting for my family to wake up for breakfast.... More

Food here is healthy and delicious. Stopped by for breakfast and lunch a few times during my visit to Delray Beach. There is a reason this cafe has been around since 1978...they know what keeps patrons coming back.

Found this little restaurant as we were walking to the beach one morning. Gave it a try and feel in love. The food home cooked and delicious. Love it so much came back for lunch that same day and for breakfast before we ended our stay. Anyone stopping in Delray has to go there.

Good food isn't fast, fast food isn't good. I love this place. They always offer unique sandwich and salad options. Everything from avocado and hummus sandwiches to PB and banana. Love their salads, too. They're often a one or two man show so don't expect to show up with five people and be eating in five minutes. It's worth the... More

For the price, not that great. Waited to be acknowledged for a few, and I'm pretty mellow with small places. Took awhile, pretty good food, and I am just not excited about paper plates and plastic utensils at this price.

The location, price, and food quality are all good. The first sign that the management does not like to clean is that everything is served on plastic plates, disposable cups and flatware. There is a large open trash can (no lid!!) between the door and the closest inside table. I arrived at opening time (8 am) and the first two... More

This cafe is tucked in a courtyard about a block from the beach and just across from the Marriott. You have to go inside and order at the small counter. We had an omelet and a breakfast burrito and both came with fruit salad. It's nothing fancy, but the food was good, hot, and quick. Definitely less expensive than the... More

This is a delightful cafe where you can. Eat inside or outside. The setting outside is gorgeous, like you're eating in a garden. The food is fresh and tasty. Just a little too pricey.

OMG… you will think you are in Europe! Lovely courtyard ambiance. Great breakfast. We fell upon it by accident and went back a 2nd time. Super friendly staff, order at the counter and they call you when your foods ready, so its modified self service, fresh and healthy food and reasonable prices. The lovely outside seating is just so relaxing... More
