This is a lovely little cafe in the heart of downtown. The staff was very friendly, and the food was outstanding. We had a great brunch to begin our day. I recommend reservations to ensure a seat!

It was a cute place. Food was good but average. We had a new server who was very slow. I thought it would be better.

This year, something has changed. My Caesar Salad was poorly dressed, and anchovies are not available. We had two Cream of ____ soups, and both were very thin and... More

We went for a late breakfast and were delighted. The scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked. The eggs florentine had a perfect balance of fresh spinach and goat cheese.
