“Off the beaten path - hunt it down.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were driving all around Carbondale looking for breakfast when I passed this place. I remember seeing the name on Trip Advisor the night before. Excellent breakfast. Excellent service. Wonderful ambiance. Glad we made the stop. Locavores will appreciate their food finds. Well worth the trip off the path.

“Not a chain!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Serving the Carbondale community, Longbranch is a vegetarian cafe with incredible homemade desserts, great hot and cold beverages, and salsa dancing on Saturday nights. A plus for many reasons. Great place to study or meet with friends.

“I wanted everything on the menu”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a casual place in a neat old building in the center of Carbondale. Don't let the "vegetarian" tag scare you off. Everything on the menu looked appealing. My husband and I had the grilled cheese panini which was excellent and huge (our son got half of each of our sandwiches for leftovers), with a side of grilled tofu that was firm on the outside and soft on the inside, perfectly done. The Italian cream sodas are a treat too.
