`I am not complaining but the cost for 2 seems to be high. You get good quality food with good service. On weekends, the family shows up. The Sowers make babies like they make good food. Their kids are delightful.

This place is the best! The staff is so accommodating, there are games/bean bags for kids, and the menu includes gluten-free alternatives. My personal favorite is the GF pumpkin chocolate chip muffin and veggie pesto omelet! Oh, and the lattes...heavenly!

The location is easy to find and the place can easily get packed. Their pretzels are absolutely great and the cafe has a nice environment and smell to it.

Friend took us there - it’s a good thing as it’s tucked away in one of the little side areas off of Sowers. Very friendly, order at counter service. Open kitchen. Everything made to order it looks like. Tight seating with some tall counter-type seating...More

we have been there multiple times. Very friendly, and the food was great. I usually get omeletes, and have tried most of them. I have never been disappointed. My wife loves their teas and usually gets an egg sandwich. There are a lot of good...More
