“Great place to grab breakfast, lunch”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I live nearby and go here all the time for lunch. Considering the relatively small population of our neck of the woods, this place is exceptional. They've got innovative specials and the Californian panini is my favorite regular menu item. This is a cozy little spot with friendly staff and, if you've got a sweet tooth, they make great baked items. If the weather is nice, you can sit out on the porch or at the outside picnic table right by the water. Seats at the back of the restaurant have a nice view of the lake.

“Excellent Cafe”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We have eaten breakfast and lunch here. Food is fresh, imaginative and excellent. The prices are very reasonable. If you are lucky, you might be able to have dinner with live music on occasion.

“Olde Post Office Worth A Visit”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a pretty spot for breakfast or lunch. Th food was good and reasonably priced. The view of the lake is lovely. The only issue I had the day we were there is because it is a small interior, the noise level was loud.

“Good food, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a bright cheery place in a pretty restored post office on the lake in downtown Mt. Vernon. The food is excellent and people travel to come here to eat. They have a big choice at breakfast and food is well prepared. They are open seven days and have free wi-fi.

“Great place”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

My husband discovered this place. Amazing menu. Great coffee. Beautiful view of the lake. The bakery items are awesome too. Food is served on paper plates with plastic cutlery. But still worth the trip. Upscale selections of high quality food. Items like breakfast burritos, quiche, crepes, stuffed french toast and much more.
