This place is very inviting, with a bright and colorful interior. The coffee is great and there are food options as well.

The entree I chose was the Basque Shepard's Lamb and Beef Stew. This was one of the best meat stews I have ever had. The coffee house works hard to make these Thursday dinner nights special and this is greatly appreciated.

The Blue Heron is a must every time we are in town. The place has a great vibe (although it can get pretty loud when busy) and very high quality soup and sandwich options, great coffee, and does offer bottled beer as an option as...well.More

Visitor center recommended this place and we didn’t want a big meal. This hit the spot. They had a wide variety of items including salads, sandwiches, and baked goods. There was a lovely display of flower photographs which was enjoyable.

Stopped on way through Winona. What a great place. Had quiche and coffee both tasty. Husband had egg salad said it was really good.

Food and coffee is a natural and pure conscious choice that you can feel good about. I find the prices a bit steep, but you will have a free conscience towards health and fair trade.

A marvelous place to meet with friends, family or colleagues over a delicious meal. Fresh local ingredients put together by amazing chefs. Open for breakfast and lunch and occasionally during the evening. Food is wonderful! Atmosphere is friendly.

I ordered the kale salad, and it was delicious. They also offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches for my kids, which was great because they weren't on the menu.

We just stopped for a quick coffee and a sandwich and wish we had been able to try more menu items. The chicken salad was great and bread was best I've tasted. You can't miss with this place.
