Wonderful restaurant. Multiple options for breakfast and lunch, including paninis, sandwiches, eggs, and smoothies. Menu is marked for gluten free and vegan options. Uses local suppliers. Great coffee shop ambiance. Love it!

This is the most perfect place for a delicious, home made breakfast or lunch with some friends. It has such a cozy atmosphere. You might have to wait a little while but for the food to be freshly prepared, it's worth it.

Enjoyed breakfast the last time we were here and decided to try it for lunch and we were not disappointed. Still spotless, the staff is pleasant and attentive. Tried a grillatilla. Nice selection of teas and lattes.

What a nice place this was! Super friendly young folks working there. I had the veggie pesto omelette and it was outstanding. If you're in State College, you have to check this spot out!

Definitely go here. A buddy recommended this place to me and ended up going twice in a week. Everything is so fresh. Their pesto veggie omelette is incredible. They make perfect soft pretzels and a proper iced tea.

It was great to be able to have a gluten free panini while walking around Penn State University. The food and atmosphere were excellent. Staff was very knowledgeable of Celiac Disease and the available options. Will definitely visit again when in the area!

Everyone is so friendly and the food is awesome!! It is like farm to table food. The Mennonite family and other workers are so nice and the atmosphere is welcoming to all.
