“Consistently good food, excellent service”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Hmmm. . . I just read the negative review by B L -- hard to believe we are talking about the same place. We live close to The Eclectic and have been there many times -- food is always good and the service is excellent. [A number of years ago they had a dip in food quality, in our opinion, but they are back up on top again.] Great salads, sandwiches, soups. A bit pricier than you'd expect IMHO esp. for Mexican food (which is tastier elsewhere, so get a salad, soup, sandwich instead.)

“Terrible Food and Service”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We had a couple of Italian dishes ordered at this cafe over a year ago. The food served at our table neither looked Italian nor tasted anything resembling Italian food to us. The service was also terrible.

“Nice Place with Great Service”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised to find this Cafe around the corner from my hotel. The Cafe's premise is good food comes from fresh ingredients. The menu has a lot of healthy selections and I settled on the Halibut Cobb Salad, which is pictured on their menu. It was very good - I'm not a big eater, but I finished nearly every bite!

“A real gem”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I've eaten here several times now and am always very glad I did. Excellent ingredients prepared perfectly and often imaginatively is a can't miss recipe. Excellent service is also a plus.

“Breakfast anytime”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

New menu with several of their best weekend brunch offerings on the everyday menu. Great Mexican, excellent staff, out door dining ( bring the family pet). Price is right and coupons are available.
