“Good Employees but Sometimes Fair Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

On occasion, the food is just average. The staff is comprised of fun and hard working young people. Avoid the restaurant during peak lunch time. We prefer to go around 11:30 or 1:15. Great coffee and smoothies!

“Perfect place for a lunch snack!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a quick lunch here during a recent visit to Aiken SC.
The special of the day was their Palmetto Panino: a pimento cheese sandwich with fresh tomatoes and Bacon. Tomatoes were fresh and just ripe. Bacon wasn't greasy at all. And the pimento cheddar cheese was to die for!
I asked for a recommendation on their soup of the day and ended up trying the Crab Bisque. Very tasty and satisfying! Staff was friendly, and food came out in no time at all!

This cafe has an informal atmosphere and it is located in the heart of Aiken SC. Perfect stop after enjoying a morning walk! Outdoor seating available (although flies were an issue, even during the month of October. This is horse country so it doesn't matter where you go, flies will be there!)

Overall, a very good experience! Look forward to another visit!

“Quirky and a bit cramped”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Went in a few months ago for lunch with a relative after having this recommended by a couple of people. No complaints on the food, but it was a little awkward to get in and order (the main room is pretty crowded) and then to figure out where to sit (there's a little hallway off to the side with more tables).

Not bad, but not some place you feel inclined to want to do more than grab your food and go somewhere with more space.

“Ok, but chaotic.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Good coffee and cinnamon roll was excellent. Inside is cramped and loud. They need to turn the music down. Friendly staff but barista was slow and seemed confused.
