We ended up here by default for a late lunch, and had flavorful and creative fresh sandwiches, friendly service and yummy blueberry cheesecake. Not as crowded as another place around the corner that wouldn't seat us at 2:05. A happy accident!

We came here for lunch. The food was great and the service was terrific. Very interesting dishes. I had the fried green tomato BLT and my wife had the Pastrami Reuben which she thought was delicious. I also got an order of Blueberry Cheesecake to go. I loved it! Thanks!

I love breakfast foods, but don't usually rave about them. But this was literally the best breakfast wrap I've EVER had! I had plain egg and cheese, which at other places might be bland, but here the flavor of the cheese was so delicious, I can't figure out why it was so amazing! My husband had the egg, cheese and...

I have eaten here three times, and the breakfast is fast, good, and filling. The Italian sausage omelet will overwhelm you! Good waitresses.

Vibrant place, always full so you know it's good. People who work here are great, the food is very good, and you can usually find a seat. There's also a small but excellent used bookstore at the back of the space. Always enjoy coming here.

We were looking for a sit down breakfast and they only had breakfast wraps and counter service. We did go back later in the day for iced cold brew which was very good!

During my two-week stay in Rockland I spent most mornings stopping by Rock City Cafe to enjoy a breakfast of blueberry pie and iced coffee. One morning they were out of blueberry and I tried the raspberry pie. These pies are incredible, made from scratch. I met with pastry chef Victoria Covill to express my appreciation for making the best... More

Great if you have to read or write. Lots of tables w/outlets for your laptop. I had some kind of egg and cheese wrap (santa fe, I think they call it), which was terrific. Lovely tea in pots if you like. Bookstore in the back. Friendly, eclectic crowd, w/travelers as well as locals.
