We stopped here for lunch and found that this place has excellent sandwiches. We had a warm Italian sandwich and a warm chicken sandwich. The service was very good and coffee excellent.

Very quaint yet modern vibe to this place. Recommend to stop here while in town sight seeing. We opted for just coffee, but they had a great brunch type menu and pastries even vegan options. Love local fresh health food options and this place is it. Great seating in and outside patio.

Pick up some food to go and go down by the river and sit by the water and watch the boats come and go...food is usually very good. Employees are usually pretty good...depending on the summer here help..sometimes there are waits. Breakfast sandwiches are very good..have an assortment of pastries and goodies, all homemade.

The staff has always been wonderful and the coffee is great! We were there on a Sunday morning and at the suggestion of the barista, we ordered a wonderful blueberry scone. As my husband and I were sitting at the bar enjoying our scone & coffee, we were suddenly hit by the tantalizing smell of bacon!! Of course we had... More
