Amazing local art fills the walls and great food, coffee and treats fills their guests up! Be ready to hunt for a table as this is one of the most popular places in town. They frequently have local musicians perform in the evenings.

Meals are always great, the owner always comes around and asks how everything is which I think is something all restaurants should do.

I come to inspire quite often. Took a little too long to post a review! The food is always delicious. The staff are friendly. Great ambience! My favorite thing to order for lunch is the curried egg salad sandwich on raisin bread. I'm never disappointed
