We ended up here after the restaurant we were originally headed to for dinner was closed. The menu is pretty limited for entrees, most of what they sell is sweet. However, I had the Tuscan chicken crepe and it was REALLY good. Breakfast also looks...More

Great food and coffee, but bring a lawn chair and a Sudoku book to entertain yourself while you wait over an hour for a table.
