We stopped for lunch in this quaint cafe. Tasty smoked chicken chowder. the egg salad sandwich was good but I think the egg salad could have had a little more flavor. My husband said the roast beef and cheddar sandwich was very tasty and I really enjoyed the date bar for dessert.

Was lost in the Rockwood area looking for a coffee shop. Spotted this cafe and couldn't have found a better place. The dessert display was the first thing I saw and ended up with one of the best brownies ever as well as a GF granola bar. All homeade. So many great looking items on the menu made me wish... More

Youd think a cafe could make good coffee but not this one. I went in and he was on the phone. Never put the phone down. Didnt ask if he could help me just stared at me stupidly waiting for me to order. On top of that the coffee was horrible and the food is the kind of thing you... More

I had a very pleasant lunch of wrap and salad. The service and staff were very pleasant. I would recommend not missing this gem as you pass through. I can not wait until the patio is open:)

We drive to Rockkwood often to lunch at this cafe. Leo makes everything from scratch....always fresh and very different. A different delicious home made soup daily and this week tried a five veggie salad....wilt lentils, and quinoa. Absolutely wonderful. The only complaint is we wish he was in our town, but well worth the drive.

They have the best egg salad I have ever had. The bread is always so fresh, homemade soups are delicious. They have a few specials everyday and everything tastes healthy and fresh. Great for a nice lunch when you are in the area. Warm atmosphere.

These guys are great. Local, wonderful and with totally creative and unique dishes (curried egg salad wrap anyone?) Sad we have moved from the area and can't enjoy it as often as we'd like!
