Great atmosphere, nice outdoor seating area right the heart of downtown Midland. Really good, inventive food. Walk to the Tridge after eating.

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.

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.

While everyone else enjoyed the basic breakfast fare (the Belgian waffle looked like a typical Belgian waffle and the scrambled eggs with bacon were nothing fancy), I enjoyed a blueberry scone.

Pricey but very pleasant. Nice place for after work with friends. Just be prepared for the price when ordering a glass of wine.
