Waited over 35 mins for our order. Granted they were busy because of bridge day. Staff seemed a little disorganized. Good was ok but a little pricey. Only got chips and pickle with sandwich, no other option. Long line to pay at register. Register person was also taking orders.

The building was beautiful. The restaurant seemed disorganized with the wait staff, moving a lot but not really getting anywhere. It took quite a bit for our breakfast food to be prepared.

I thought this place would be fantastic - two of my favorite things, books and coffee. I was wrong. Tacky just comes to mind, being located in an old church should have the ability to just blow you away - but it doesn't. You walk in and go, "oh." Food average, service average, tacky inside, I don't recommend it.

The sandwiches were okay at this establishment but the service was awful. The staff was very inattentive. Our drinks were never refilled and our waitress never came back to offer us a box or our check. Also, there were a lot of rough looking people popping in and out. The men's bathroom was also out of order. Go to Secret... More

I have been to this cafe many times. One of my favorite places to eat. The hypocrite is my favorite sandwich there and the pasta salad and carrot are to die for. Very relaxed environment. Bookshelves filled with books to read all around. Great coffee. A must when you are in Fayetteville

I wanted to visit because of the building. I am so glad I did! I went with no expectations and was so pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and they were so friendly. I was curious about the former life of the building and our server was so helpful and even brought a book over for us to get further... More

Went here for breakfast after two days of rafting. Extremely friendly people there. Place is very cosy - nice mix of locals and visitors. Food was what we hoped for for breakfast. Perfect place to start a day of hiking.

Food is great but attentive service is not a priority. Didn't bother me as I got my own coffee refills. It is meant to be a mix of self-service as there are only a couple of folks serving the entire cafe.

Food was delicious and smoothies are made with fresh fruits. You can definitely taste the freshness. Definitely be back. We didn't bring our kids but the little treasure chest for the kids would have been a hit with them.
