“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Was visiting UConn with my daughter and we grabbed lunch here. Had a great menu with some interesting foods. I loved the grilled cheese with apples and carmelized onions -- was quite a treat. Would visit again...nice to have some variations of an old stand by.

“Time for Pause”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a light and delicious dinner at this new and welcoming restaurant across the street from the college campus. It was a short drive for us from a neighboring town. Menus were easy to read on high, overhead chalkboards and noted soups, salads, sandwiches, and dinner specials, and the prices were great. Each order was a good portion and delicious. Staff were helpful when ordering. There is a nice, casual yet classy atmosphere when eating here - whether breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner and many large windows let in lots of bright light. A good value - will return for breakfast on the weekend.

“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Enjoyed a nice dinner the other night. I ordered the Cajun Hotdog with a birch beer and my wife had the teriyaki chicken sandwich. Both were good. The atmosphere is relaxing with earth tones throughout the restaurant. The menu is quite extensive we will be back to try more of the menu, so far so good.

“Coffee & Spelling”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I was 'here' yesterday (8/4/13)...it might be the last? I had two different coffee flavors around 4 PM. The blends were coconut and breakfast! Both were about the worst coffee I have ever had...almost as bad as what me mother made from pond water. The music was loud and some dysfunctional jazz method behind its misconception. Further, there was an almost constant cacophony and din of blenders, really annoying to the aural senses.

Wait, wait, there's more (Ginsu knives, no)...the menu...the menu! Upon entering was a large
board with 'specials' written there upon. Number heading the list was , "Fish Cake Caeser" (sic).
I told an employee (associate...whatever they are today) that Caesar was spelling incorrectly.
Her retort...I didn't write the menu. Come-on...it's college time. No change was made.

“Great place”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great menu, wonderful atmosphere. Terrific location in Storrs! Relaxing cafe that is quickly becoming a social hub for locals as well as for the student population.
