I love going here for coffee or lunch. The salads are huge and delicious. The atmosphere is lively and comfortable. I love that I can grab a blanket when I am cold.

I've eaten here a few times and have been very pleased. The food has been good and I love the relaxed atmosphere. Dog friendly, too! Great staff.

You might drive by and easily miss this place since there is no signage and it is only crowded from word of mouth. Our breakfast was pricey but expected in Danville. All items were very good. scones, oatmeal, s'mores pudding, french toast. Didn't enjoy the coffee but small flaw for us overall. The area is charming but parking can be... More

Cozy place. Parking in Danville is difficult, I suggest parking at the nearby clock tower parking lot and walking to the restaurant. Various tables and chairs and blankets for cool days and nights. Live music on occasion. Finding a table can be a challenge as you seat your self and sometimes one person will take a 4 top and if... More

this is the best local cafe in our neighborhood. i do miss the older location, but each has a different vibe. regardless, the place still gets busy. we love the beignets, and ask for chocolate sauce on the side. at times, i feel the servers who bring out the food aren't the most friendly, but i couldn't say that happened...

I had the worst Thai Chicken salad of my life. Too much sauce, or better : vinegar! It was as sour as it could be. As I was in a hurry I did not return it but mentioned my disappointment to the cashier whose reaction was : that the way it is! He seemed not to care the least! Is... More

Funky little place with no sign out front since they don't need to attract customers 'cause, word has it, the place is always packed. Great baked goods, egg dishes, and more . . . . food delish, service sloooooowwwwwwwww . . . .

Our "go to" spot in Danville. Fresh local ingredients. The only reason I give it only 4 stars is that sometimes when they're busy, the service is very slow. This is the most popular resto in Danville.

Had veggie sandwich with salad. IMO, they have one of the best veggie sandwich. We have been here for breakfast as well, very good omelettes and various egg dishes. They also have variety of baked stuff. Bread pudding is also very good.
