“Great brunch variety”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

You never know who you'll run into but everyone knows Summerhouse Cafe is a great place for breakfast, lunch or brunch. I have not tried dinner but can only imagine that it's fabulous. Love their signature salad and quiches and soups and I could go on and on. Go and enjoy! Great for families, friends, business, couples or even alone. Don't have time, get take out..it's worth it.

“Cant be disappointed”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

You cant be disappointed going to Summer House for any meal. The food is always great and the atmosphere relaxing. You might want to make a reservation on Sunday morning, as they tend to get slammed. I proudly take business associates here for lunch or breakfast.

“superior attention to details”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

I've now experienced every meal of the day here. I'd have to say the lunch menu is the best, with breakfast a close second and dinner needing to step its game up. First, the reviewer who left the 'terrible' rating is clearly not on the same planet as everyone else. I have brought several friends here from out of town that now demand we come to Summerhouse every time they visit.

My favorite lunch staple: their Cuban is amazing.

Breakfast: anything

Dinner: well, it's BYOB. Any BYOB joint gains major points for me.

“Good for lunch even on Sunday!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Small place, so you have to know when to go to get a seat for breakfast/lunch time. You might be able to make dinner reservations. On the plus side they have healthy food-- some different soups and quiches you won't get other places. BYOB for dinner. Would recommend for casual lunch or dinner.
