“Good food with a bad attitude”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stopped here because another restaurant in the area was closed permanently. The decor is beautiful. It was not super crowded (about 6 other groups) and we were seated immediately. After we declined the "happy hour" special that was outlined for us, it was apparent that we weren't as "welcome" as the rest of the crowd who was imbibing. We ordered our food, which arrived fairly quickly. A Caesar salad with salmon was excellent as was the chicken salad wrap. Both were very nicely presented and very delicious. The food was overpriced--but typical for the area. It was a disappointment that our waitress did not stop by once after we received our food. She never asked if we needed anything else or how our meal was. A simple "is everything ok?" would have been nice. We were ignored during the entire time we were eating, which is unacceptable. The only reason a small tip was left was because 2 other women also working there were thoughtful enough to check on us, albeit a bit late--we were already finished.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had breakfast at the Café and were welcome together with a group of antique car collectors. There was no limit on the Champagne and orange juice... The quiche was as good as in France, and the service was efficient and done with a smile. WE really enjoyed our experience there.

“wine and snacks, yes please!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

A cute little place with good service and yummy wine and snacks! Located next to the Sundial so you can enjoy it and then have a glass of wine at Venues.

“Just OK”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Breakfast buffet was nothing special and barely warm. Mimosa was good but not everyone wants "bottomless" ($$$). Quiche had soggy base but side salad was delicious. Don't think we'll go back for breakfast, but would like to give the wine tasting a try as the atmosphere seemed conducive to that type of setting.

“Good place for coffees, conversation casual foods.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Comfortable surroundings and attentive staff. Chef really needs to look at the menu and decide what they are really going for here. Choose a venue and stay with it please!
