“Amazing food for breakfast and lunch!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Cafe Rae is our go-to place for Sunday mornings after church. The food is made from the freshest ingredients and tastes excellent. The decor is essentially hand-created by Jenny. The room is full of her hand drawn banners, t-shirts, table clothes as well as an extensive floral arrangement. The cafe is in between a bike shop and a light store but it feels tucked away in its own world. And yes, you should give in to the temptation of their coconut chocolate chip cookies, they are well worth it. Definitely check this place out!

“Nice breakfast place”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Cute little place. Food was well done, their homemade granola is fantastic. Have only been there for breakfast, but I'm sure lunch is just as good.

“Awesome breakfast”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This a great little local place with really good, fresh, homemade food. We had breakfast- blueberry pancakes were delicious and HUGE! The waiter was super friendly and kept the coffee coming and the coffee was excellent. The shop is cute and comfy filled with friendly locals. Will remember this place.

“Enjoy while you can”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

We eat here as often as possible and its always good in fact to good .nothing this good lasts forever . The smallish location is bright and busy .its owner operated so quality and service are top notch the portions are large and very good. They only do breakfast and lunch and the place is full of young families so its can get loud . Try the pancakes or French toast you won't be sorry

“I can't believe there isn't a line out the door for this place”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

This is our go to place for breakfast on the weekends. We usually go here for breakfast, but the lunch is great too. All the ingredients they use are high quality. The bacon and sausage are delicious vs. other places where the bacon is paper thin. Try the corn flake crusted french toast. It is heavenly. Pancakes, breakfast potatoes and breakfast burrito are awesome.
