I stopped in for a cup of coffee at about 11:00 on a weekday. The restaurant was empty except for one couple having lunch when I got there. At about 11:45 I was finishing my coffee and preparing to leave. A lunch crowd had arrived...More

I’ve yet to have a bad experience at the Lizard. You can’t be the homegrown and organic choices they offer. All meals are fresh and made to order. The soups are different every day and handcrafted to perfection.

We love this place. The atmosphere is relaxing. The staff are friendly. This place is unique and cozy! Love the fact that they serve foods from local farms. We visited the Lizard Cafe twice before we went back to California.

Organic. Tasty. Local. I love The Lizard. Everything is always prepared fresh and taste wonderful. The smell of fresh bread greets you as you walk in the door. My favorite is the mushroom and artichoke sandwich but you can’t go wrong no matter what you...More

Friendly service and a good selection of sandwiches and wraps. We ordered the turkey BLT, corn chowder, turkey wrap, and a grilled cheese. The girls loved the turkey wrap. My husband and I share the soup and other 2 sandwiches. I liked the turkey BLT...More

The wife myself and two teenage grandchildren happened upon this bookstore / sandwich place. We each had a different sandwich and they were all good. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The sandwiches are large so might split one and if still hungry get one...More
