“best in town”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

we went to Biosphere 2 for a tour but decided to have lunch before the 1.5 hours tour. This small cafe is only 5 miles away along East Amrican Avenue. We were greeted by 2 young ladies; they were cheerful. The place is lively with lots of sun light and colorful. Our lunch orders were nicely presented and looked so yummy. We were not disappointed. Make sure to save room for deserts. I had a cocunut cake; there was a piece of cocunut in very bite. My wife had apple-pear pie and it was equally tasty. Don't over look this small cafe..the services were equally as good as the food. The server was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. The cafe opens for breakfast and lunch until 3 PM...you can order breakfast dishes any times.

“My snooty high expectations were met!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

What great place for a relaxed Sunday breakfast! Service and surroundings so down-to-earth and friendly. Flavors of the Food: impressively tasty and gourmet subtle. Niiice coffe! Above all, you can really feel the love they put into the foods they are making for you. My wife and I are very excited to have another go-to place to eat where we can really relax and enjoy every aspect of the dining experience. Simple and soulfully sophisticated :)

“An Unexpected Delight”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

This new cafe on main street Oracle offers lots of standards (pizza, quiche, chili, salads, pie made on premises) done right but also some surprises - biscuits and gravy with chorizo, gluten free, piadini, smoothies. The chef/owners are delightful and friendly. The back patio is cheerful and relaxing. The inside is bright and colorful. A great place to stop on your way to the mountains or lakes, or if you're going to Biosphere or Oracle State Park (when it's open). Lots of locals hang out here. Wi Fi too.

“Inventive but unpretentious food”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Inventive but unpretentious food lovingly prepared and served. This is a relaxed, comfortable place where you will never be disappointed. The blueberry pie is the best I've ever eaten.

“Great spot with grand food”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This charming cafe opened in Oracle, Az just a few weeks ago and is already attracting locals and out of towners in growing numbers. In fact, it's so good a trip up from Tucson or even down from Phoenix will be rewarded. The grilled sandwiches, fresh baked scones, salads extraordinaire, quiche and home grown and baked pies reward the hungry and discriminating alike. Go there and enjoy the back patio or delightful interior. The owners are chef originals and marvelous hosts. 6 am til 3 pm every day except Monday.
