Wow. I was just here in February and it was 5 stars. On this visit it was 2 stars at best. It took over an hour to get our food and it was not a full restaurant. I expected more out of Leslie and her...More

Hello Mike - I'm sorry that you did not have a good experience at our café. From our perspective things played out a bit differently. Typically when one brings in a large group, we have more than 10 minutes warning and we provide a shortened...More

Great little find, tucked away in Southern Pines. I enjoyed the lunch special, chicken parm tartine (French for open-faced sandwich) and it was absolutely delicious!
