Met friends for lunch here. I had the veggie panini really enjoyed it. My friends had the quiche, and they weren't happy with it. I've had lunch here about three times, and I've always been happy with my choice. I'm a picky eater so that's...More

Fabulous food, great service, great atmosphere. Hope they hold this event again. It was their best apps... all delicious with bananas foster and vanilla ice cream for dessert. We wish they were open for dinner all the time. Don’t miss breakfast or lunch there.

Such a cute place. Friendly service and really good breakfast. Hot coffee. We didn't make it to try lunch or dinner but I am sure it would be good!

Very excellent staff. Anne Marie and Katrina are two wonderful waitresses. It can be a wait to get in, but worth it. My favorite is an omelette with goat cheese and spinach. My side bread is an English Muffin and it’s so good. Their fruit...More
