Nice place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. I would happily return. Very nice selection. I can see this as a frequent place to visit.

I have eaten here several times for breakfast, this was my first time for lunch. Enjoyed having the option of 1/2 sandwich and salad. Not that I needed it, I was surprised that did not offer any desserts.

My wife ordered the waffles and I had the Billy Grill Benedict which was a two egg benedict with corned beef hash. Both were wonderful. Lynn our waitress was right on point taking care of our every need. Don't miss this place if you are in the area. Great food at reasonable prices and a wonderful wait staff.

I went for the first time on July 6th around 11am. The place was fairly busy, but we were seated right away. The cafe serves breakfast and lunch, closing at 2pm. We both ordered iced coffee, which was fine. I ordered an omelette with Swiss cheese, spinach and ham. I also ordered a side of bacon. Everything was delicious. My... More

I came with my mom on her birthday last Sunday and we enjoyed breakfast outside! Such a quaint little place with an Amazing menu! I had the trail mix pancakes and she had the birds nest! Great service. Great food. We are going back this Sunday for sure!

Joined friends today for lunch. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Extensive choices, enticing combinations. I chose the Thai chicken salad. Lovely spices and great peanut sauce...combined with slaw and romaine. They have daily specials too. Would definitely return when I'm in the area again.

This is a cafe/breakfast/lunch place that has been open for about 5 years. The decor is great, it is neat and clean. They do not serve dinner. The breakfasts are excellent and even though I haven't been for lunch, based on the great job they do on breakfast, I'm sure the lunch is excellent. This is probably the best place... More

Breakfast and lunch are both delicious. During the week breakfast is only served until 11:30.This is a very busy, popular cafe but I have never had to wait long for a table and the service has always been good. There are always delicious specials as well as an extensive menu selection. It is tastefully decorated.

Serving only breakfast and lunch they have it down pat. They have a great variety of sandwiches, and soups for lunch. It's a nice clean place with a friendly staff. They have a great and varied breakfast menu (which I think you can order at any time). It's pleasantly decorated and clean, a very nice place to have breakfast or... More
