Well, I'm seeing the negative reviews here, but that was not our experience at all. I've driven by this cafe many, many times and always meant to stop and so stop we did on the way back from Lake Tahoe. The view of the foothills is great, and there is an outdoor patio that we'd like to experience when the weather is warmer.
We were greeted by a display case full of yummy-looking pastries, and seated by a friendly server in the very country-cute cafe. I was happy to have a few vegetarian choices! I went for a quesadilla that was mushroom-heavy (my own fault for not requesting a substitue veggie), but otherwise very tasty and nicely cooked.
My better half had a chicken sandwich. The cook provided a grilled chicken breast instead of the breaded patty at her request, which we appreciated, and which she enjoyed very much.
It seemed a sin to eat out in the Apple Hill area and not indulge, so we did. The caramel apple pie was a treat, with thick chunks of apple the way we like them! It was too late in the day for coffee for me, but I appreciated that they serve organic coffee...
The ambience was quiet and our server was attentive and helpful. The bathroom needed some work (couldn't find the light switch, towels and soap had to be provided as the amenities weren't working), but it was serviceable.
We'll be back to try it again in the future and check out the patio!
