A bit of a wait, but worth it! We stopped in around noon for breakfast, (served all day). I highly recommend the stacked French toast. Comes with a homemade cream cheese concoction and drizzled with an apple sauce. The blueberry pancakes and apple cinnamon waffles were great as well.

We were a very large party with a baby and our service was wonderful. The food was delicious, with good size portions, not too big or small, and there is fun and healthy variety that is not on the average menu. We could definitely recommend this cafe to anyone.

We accidentally ended up here during Blueberry Festival. They take your name and number and text you when your table is ready so you can still walk around town. But we only had to wait about 15 minutes They serve breakfast all day (but you can order lunch too). Really great food and service.

A relatively simple menu that pleased all 6 of us from kids to adults. The people were nice and the food was good. Nothing fancy, but dependable. Best for Breakfast or lunch.

We had to wait an hour for a table as the place was small, but the BLT was huge! When they said half pound of bacon on the menu, they meant it!! Delicious!

This is a popular place to eat so there might be a wait, but it's soooo worth it! The staff is friendly and efficient and the food like your grandma makes. It's a must try on your list of restaurants to try.
