Loved this little cafe! I had the vegan Reuben with vegetable soup. For dessert my boyfriend and I shared a slice of the homemade key lime pie. Delicious!

Foods good hours of operation suck. A breakfast place that is barely open at 8:30 am in my opinion is poor but I guess that’s cafe hours for you. Healthy eaters don’t wake up early anyway. I will say gladly for a hippie restaurant I...More
