“A Laundromat Diner to Love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

This place is located in the front of a laundromat. Do NOT let that put you off. This is an amazing place for lunch. Everything is prepared fresh and is excellent. The caprese sandwich with fig balsamic jam is special. Try it with their basil limeade that is a nice riff on lemonade. It was so good we went there twice in the three days we were in town. The only regret is we didn't have room to try their custom custards. Don't miss this place for lunch!

“Eclectic, but quite tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

A cafe in a laundromat - a little different. But glad I'm a grown-up - the Adult Grilled Cheese was outstanding - thick, gooey, and delicious. And the setting was fun and staff very attentive, Thanks for a great visit.

“Smitten”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

This place must staff the friendliest people in this friendly town! Numerous visits have me feeling like i want to invite them all for dinner. So warm. It doesnt hurt that the food is really good and generously served. Good options for every diet and they are super willing to accommodate. Lunch, dinner...all good. Only downside is no beer or wine.

Darling and handy location. The adult grilled cheese is to die for! My daughter loved to walk up there from her school for lunch!
