“Big Mugs of Coffee, Good food, service”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

On our visit, we had the nicest and most friendly waitress. The food was delish. We had the cinnamon french toast and breakfast burrito. They serve breakfast late, so that was a huge plus for us. Parking is easy as it is in a shopping center. It is towards the back of the shopping center, so once you park just walk towards the middle on the lower level. Best of all, the coffee is served in nice big mugs like at home. The day we were there, they came by often to top off and refill our coffees.

“Large portions”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

After reading the reviews, we decided to eat lunch here. I had the tuna fish salad. It was a large portion of canned tuna, on top of lettuce, surrounded by several different kinds of chopped vegetables. I enjoyed it more then I expected and couldn't finish it, because I got too full. My husband had a custom omelette. He said it was dry, as if over cooked. His meal came with with potatoes and fruit, which he said were good. They have a nice outdoor patio, which I found to be relaxing. We had our dog with us and dogs are allowed here on the patio. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was not busy while we were there. Their prices are reasonable for what you get.

“A Great Place For Breakfast or Lunch”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Okay...so it is so worth searching for...just don't look in the big Crossroads shopping center. It is in the Barnyard...near the big Post Office. Perfect granola! Great wraps! Huge portions and really friendly servers. Our go to place out of Carmel:)

You can always rely on this place to be consistently, good, homemade food! The inside eating area is small but they have a beautiful outdoor eating area! We ate here for breakfast & lunch! Both were outstanding! Their service is good as well. Definitely what we would call "old reliable"!

“Hard to find, but worth the hunt”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had to walk around the maze of a shopping area to find the place, but once we did, it was great! The waitress was great - very personable and attentive. The food was DELICIOUS and definitely "From Scratch" - if we had found it earlier during our visit we would have gone back daily!
