The food is handmade, tasty, and in keeping with the quirky winery and microbrewery nearby. The cafe is tiny, but there is outdoor seating for nice weather.

I stopped in for lunch a couple of weeks ago with some of my girl friends. The prices were very fair and the food was tasty however the lady behind the counter (debby?) ruined my experience. My friends and I chose to do business with them and we will never make that mistake again. There are lots of other restaurants... More

I just found this small cafe and fell in love with the servers (Debby, Lance) and it's food. It's a great place for lunch, on sunny days you can sit outside and soak up that sun while enjoying some quality food.

We met in a sunny spring Saturday for lunch. We could have say outside but chose to sit inside and talk. The ladies said the salads were wonderful, and my Turkey avocado BLT was right on the mark. I should have had some chips with it, but it went down good.

I did not even know this area existed, but was on my way to the Lake and decided to grab a coffee on the way. From the outside, it looks very quaint and I was excited to have found a little mom & pop type of establishment. The guy behind the counter was very friendly and they offered a decent... More

Covert Café is a great place for lunch when spending an afternoon at Vint Hill Winery, Bust Head Brewery, and the Cold War Museum. Their play on words hard to find and easy to love is half true. They are easy to find and even more easy to love. All their food was amazing. We enjoyed speedy service and their... More

We live in the area so have ordered sandwiches and breakfast burittos from the Covert Cafe. Good service and excellent food. Very small dining area and much of their business is pickup.

I was stationed at Vint Hill Farms at one time and decided to visit it. I found the Covert Cafe in the building that once was an orderly room. The barn by the cafe was a top secret listening post from WWII until the early 90's. The customers seem to be from the housing developments, the winery, the Cold War... More
