“Excellent breakfasts!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We had breakfast 6 days in a row here due to our stay at the place next to it. The blueberry pancakes are awesome! I am not a pancake fan but ate every bite of it because it was full of fresh, juicy blueberries. My son did not like it because he's used to the frozen blueberry waffles and said it tasted funny. Tells you a little about my parenting, doesn't it?

Had the French toast another morning and ate every bit of that. Had the sauteed banana pancakes and that was yummy but not as good as the blueberry pancakes. Had scrambled eggs and it came with a piece of papaya--how awesome is that!! My son had the fresh fruit bowl/cup and it had all sorts of berries in it in addtion to the cantaloupe, honeydew, bananas, oranges. Our only complaint was that the honeydew wasn't very ripe.

There is no kids menu but if you ask for the drink in a plastic cup w/ a lid, they will gladly oblige.

The service, as other reviewers have indicated, can be spotty. We saw good service on some days and slow service on other days. This is not the place for you if you are in a rush. If you have time and a good companion/conversationalist with you, breakfast will be a good experience!

“Great Service”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

The service here was excellent. Prices are good and food was very tasty. Small, unassuming location, but would eat here again if I was in the area.

“Great food in a not so great area”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

The food, staff and restaurant were great. The area was not so great. Try the portbello pesto omlette. It is fantastic!

The food here is Simple yet fabulous.
I felt as though we were on a food network show, the quality, flavor and appearance of the food was just great!
The staff was extremely helpful, and right on top of their service. Bottom line.....go and eat there!

Love this little cafe which serves farmers market freshly prepared food. Had a wonderful breakfast with homemade avocado salsa on the eggs! The servers are friendly and helpful--excellent service & food--a great find!
