I've eaten at this cafe numerous times while visiting friends and the food is always a disappointment. The atmosphere is the best thing it has going for it. The outdoor patio is charming but the inside is a cross between a 50s diner and your...More

The restaurant is unique aesthetically and the food is good. If you want "off the beaten path", something different, this is the place.

Locally owned and everything made fresh. We stopped in for lunch on our way to Lake Charles, and we're so glad we got off the beaten path.

We're regulars, eating lunch here 2-3 times a month, and we've never had anything that we didn't love. Staff members are courteous and knowledgable, and owners are "hands-on." The restaurant is senior-friendly, offering a discount to elders every Monday, and they have a "frequent-diner" card....More

My friend and I ate lunch there on afternoon and the food was very good. I thought it was a little pricey for sandwiches, but I realize that it cost more to make organic food.
