Very surprised! Just finding a place open on Sunday afternoon. The soup of the day, broccoli and cheese was great, the quiche great and a superb Rueben sandwich. Very fine service and enjoyable lunch!

Love this restaurant, especially for breakfast. Professional, courteous staff....nice downtown Midland surroundings and awesome food. Great food selections and huge servings! Can't wait to go back there....thanks to the staff for helping provide us special morning latte drinks "to go".

Been here several times over the past year, the last time in May. Food is very good and the fries are to die for. Frequent changes to menu keep it fresh.

I've been here a half dozen times and seem to think the same thing, ahh is good, doesn't leave me clamoring for more, outside dining is very nice, for the price I would expect more panache in the food, great tea service, so if you go, the pastry chef creates amazing desserts....

For family breakfast, it is great. Moderate pricing, staff is nice. Did not like the turkey meat options. The greek omelet is my favorite. Coffe is good. Pies are great.

The 12 grain bread to start was awesome. The sandwich was fairly good too. Not the best restaurant that I have found by going to the #1 place on trip advisor, but a solid choice.

Sat outside on their patio overlooking Main Street, a great spot for watching people and just enjoying a beautiful Saturday afternoon lunch. Food was quite good -- delicious sandwiches -- and the service spot on. Oh, and NO INANE MUSIC to interrupt our conversation. Thanks! Parking is on the street. Reasonable prices for an overall good value.
