Table we're keep clean mostly by customers returning dishes to bin at the end of the cafe. It was a Saturday and very quite with... More

Good for lunch with soup of the day as well as Quiche selections. Perfect location as it is in the downtown Racine. Walk to the lake or visit shops!

I had the opportunity to host a surprise 40th birthday party for my sister at the cafe and man-o-man, what a great time! Corey was awesome with communicating all of the details, coordinated the amazing food, and even hung around for the entirety of the party just to make sure everything went well. People loved the atmosphere; the venue itself... More

This was the only place we found open for breakfast one Friday morning in Racine and we are glad we did. The omelets are good size with fresh ingredients, and they make a good cup of coffee.

We were a party of six, plus a baby. There was room by the table for the stroller, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was good. Like Panera, there was soup, which was excellent, salad, or bread based burgers or sandwiches, with a good variety of fillings. Each choice has a combo option with either salad, crisps... More

You absolutely must try the Red Onion Chowder! Don't be fooled! The small cup is more than enough with the hard roll and you will be full for the entire afternoon!

Hit or miss. A local eatery. Limited options on the weekend. Went in on a Saturday and they had a very scaled back Saturday menu. Don't open if you are going to limit options. Only limited vegetarian options. Tried a few times and found it to be mediocre. I won't go back. Boring.
