I love being able to walk to this cafe! The space is light and airy with a revolving art collection from the local area. Breakfasts are wonderful with lots of selection. I have enjoyed many a special scramble of the day. Their baked goods are also pretty yummy! I have tried scones, muffins, and cookies and they are all exceptional!... More

Great food but slow. We went on a Sunday morning around 11 am (and were there with 1/2 of Middleton, WI) so the service was slow but maybe isn't so during the weekdays. They had a hard time keeping the coffee carafes full for the all you can drink, self-serve drip coffee. The food is fresh and prepared when ordered.... More

I have been there several times, whatever I ordered the food was not warm enough, or not as warm as you expected it to be. And who likes to eat a cold omelette? Some of my friends did make the same experience.

The restaurant is beautiful, a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. The food was ok, a little overpriced for breakfast. Service was very slow.

Everything was delicious! Quiche came with a good sized mini muffin and a good variety of fresh fruit. Self serve fantastic coffee. Great prices. Friendly employees. Nice ambiance-not overly loud so we could enjoy our conversation. Outdoor seating. A great find!

I had lunch there with some friends on a cold, snowy day. We got a table by a fireplace, real bonus. Had quiche of the day and field greens, like a real man, and it was good. It did not blow me away, but it was food worth leaving the house for. In general, the menu is good if lacking... More

My wife and I recently had breakfast here. The staff was very friendly and both our breakfasts were delicious. The restaurant is nicely decorated and had plenty of seating. We will definitely go back again.

Lots of choices on the menu. My meal was delicious! The reason for the 4 stars is that it was my first time eating there. The process of ordering was a little confusing. It's set up like a fast food restaurant where you get your own silverware, napkins, condiments etc.
