We have never been disappointed at the Treehouse Cafe. The food and the service are always terrific. The only negative is that it is always packed and you have to wait for a table.

This is one of our favorite places to eat on SSI. The food does not disappoint. Our daughter had the tempeh sandwich and said it was delicious. The green curry is one of my favs. Great flavor. My husband says the burgers are the best...More

Went for breakfast and maybe that was the wrong meal to try here - - certainly was nothing special. Wait staff a little slow going but friendly enough. Nice enough place but just didn't knock our socks off.

Although I enjoyed the restaurant and the band, I was not impressed with the burger and salad. Possibly breakfast may be better but the live entertainment is appealing as well. I would recommend trying it at least once...

wonderful location and years ago would be a place I would go back to. But it is looking worn out. The tree for which it is named is infested with caterpillars and likely dying; the wooden tables and all the "walls" probably would have been...More

Great place to pop into for either coffee or a reasonable range of food - one of the few places with plenty of vegetarian options. Really cute. Staff very friendly. Live music some evenings

You will need to call them and ask. It's a fairly small place. Might be better to go to bigger place.
