“Overpriced and not great. ”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Went in for lunch and was very disappointed. Ordered the meatball marinara sandwich and it was very bland, meatballs had zero flavor and I paid almost $10 for a lousy sandwich. My boyfriend had a cold cut sandwich that was less than mediocre. Carrot cake slice was so dry I couldn't finish it. Best part of my meal was the Arnold Palmer! Very sad, it looked good on the website. Don't waste your money.

“Everything is Amazing!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Have gone here 3 times in the past 2 weeks! From sandwiches to dessert and coffee--everything is delicious...Prices are very good for the quality. This is definitely my new favorite place in Olympia and really the best place on the West-side. Highly recommend for lunch or just grabbing a cup of coffee with friends! Everyone who works there is professional and inviting--you truly feel welcome. Location is a little tricky to find but well worth the effort!

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We stopped on a road trip and had several of the breakfast items between us. Every, single thing was incredible. Can't pick a favorite but the quiche and sausage sage biscuit were unbelievable. Wish we lived closer for frequent stops!

“Nothing vegetarian”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I went here after some friends recommended it. I went for lunch and the menu had nothing available for a vegetarian. I was told they were sold out because it was popular.

“Tasty Cakes! Very nice people and atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stopped in on Saturday for some cake shopping. The owner was very nice, very accommodating and enthusiastic about options for the cake, and was kind enough to offer a free sample! The cake was delicious and moist, the pastries in the case looked SCRUMPTIOUS, and there was also a nice selection of salads, espresso and other food, so this will be a go-to for a quick lunch or brunch in the future. The cafe has a really nice atmosphere, nicely decorated and very comfortable table spacing. Staff are all very friendly and easy going. Love it!
