Made to order and delicious. This quirky neighborhood cafe/bakery is just the place to get an excellent breakfast. Eggs were perfect and the homemade bread toast - well, yum! Food made with love. How can you go wrong?

Wonderful place! I’ve wanted to try this restaurant for some time now. We’ve tried several things there this week while on a little vacation and everything has been terrific. Really enjoyed the strawberry cake and other desserts. We’ll be back!!

This place is nestled in a neighborhood and as soon as you walk in, you will love the decor and the homey feel. I had breakfast there and the oatmeal and homeade 9 grain toast was fantastic.
