“AN EXCELLENT BREAKFAST”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast in this tucked away cafe. The service was great and the staff very pleasant. There is a wide range of dishes freshly prepared and judging from the number of diners early in the morning it might be advisable to book in the season.

“Appetizers are delicious!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Instead of dinner, my daughter and I opted to each order a salad and we split 4 appetizers. The salads were really fresh and tasted great (Classic Caesar and Austrian Fruit.) Our favorite appetizer, hands down, was the fried brussel sprouts. Such a wonderful mix of flavors with the little pieces of duck confit, lime, honey, and pumpkin seeds! My second favorite was the asparagus spears wrapped in proscuitto with a touch of sweetness from sorghum and creamy fontina cheese. My daughter liked the Maine seafood spring rolls second best- she loved the lime sauce. We didn't like the scallops that much- the corn sauce was way too spicy for us. But if you like a lot of heat, you'd love them. Eating this way was a great way to taste a variety of dishes. They have created some unusual combinations and they are very enjoyable.

“Fantastic restaurant!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We had 4 breakfasts and one dinner here and all were excellent! The food is carefully prepared and imaginatively presented with only highest quality of ingredients. The cafe atmosphere is cosy on a cool morning and romantic in the evening. We just really loved it! The granola cereal at breakfast is excellent with berries and fruit. We also enjoyed the variety of other breakfast offerings including pancakes with real maple syrup! The coffee is high quality as well.

“Real Hidden Gem”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This place is so cool, eclectic and comfortable. You just want to hang out all day here. The food is always fresh and exciting. We go here every time we visit the area. Can't wait until next year. This is my favorite place to hang with friends or just a romantic night out.

“Awesome Food and Unique Menu”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I ended up eating here three times last week (and I am the type of person that prefers not to repeat). The vegan omelette was so good I had to have it again. The room is warm and cozy and Erin provided excellent service.
