I have to admit to being addicted to Heidi and Will's establishment; no they're not my relatives or close friends, but they seem like family now. The chowder and pea soup is great, the bacon thick, the club sandwiches challenge your jaw muscles, the salads and quiche fine, even the little tub of jam is homemade! But then... it is... More

The food is what it is, not the best but fills the belly. Would not go back for breakfast, because the portions were small and not particularly good. Lunch is better, and they have decent sandwiches. Mostly, the casual atmosphere is peaceful and welcoming. The croissants, cinnamon loafs and cookies are terrific, although the cookies could be less sweet.

Nice venue, good lattes, frosted fruit scones. The egg, bacon, cheese sandwich was very good. Funky bathrooms upstairs...

1/2 Caesar salad very good and 1/2 tuna salad sandwich was pretty good, not great. My husband enjoyed his reuben sandwich very much. However, the piece of blueberry pie we ordered to share was unacceptable. We both took a bite and left the whole piece. Neither of us liked it, blueberries were sort of congealed, and crust was not very... More

A wonderful, happy place with excellent food. The owners, Heidi and Will, deliver on their promise to treat their customers like extended members of their family. The inside of the restaurant is colorful, bright, but soothing, with family photos and inspiring quotes on the wall, including a few from Elvis. The owners' attention to detail and ingredients comes through in... More

Even though the weather is changing, we were able to sit outside to eat our lunch. The pulled pork sandwich is especially good. The chocolate croissant - oh my!

This little spot is so sweet. They have great outdoor seating and a plethora of pies, pastries and other sweet goodies to choose from. I had the veggie scramble quiche with fresh fruit, which was $9.99 and my partner had the Natalie breakfast sandwich. Mine was great, but the breakfast sandwich was a little dry and bland. The coffee was... More

Great salads, great sandwiches, great soups, and blow your mind pastries, pies, and cakes. Nice clean shop with comfortable indoor and lovely outdoor seating. Most of all the owners are the chef and baker. Heidi & Will are the nicest people you could ever want running a business like this. They know you by name, remember your likes and dislikes,... More

We has sailing trip scheduled and had some time before the sail for breakfast and found this Cafe. Food was very good and the building is quaint and fun. We were told it would be 45 minutes for the food. When I ask to check on the food after an hour I was told rather sharply I told you it... More

Family owned and operated for several years. Great family-feel, down-home atmosphere. VERY attentive staff. All food locally sourced and prepared in-house. Lunch was excellent; desserts were even better. Great outdoor patio and porch, and indoor seating. A hidden gem, off "main street". Seek it out, it is worth the visit, would definitely recommend AND visit again. GO! NOW!!
