Stopped by for a quick breakfast before catching the ferry to Crypt Lake Trail. Table next to me asked if the bacon was regular bacon or Canadian bacon. The gal that worked there had never heard of Canadian bacon. Delicious breakfast with regular bacon. :)More

The sandwiches were good but overpriced for what they were. I don't think I would go back as two sandwiches cost as much as a meal elsewhere.

Actually ate here two days in a row. Both days, Hope took care of us. Had the "Hiker's Wrap" and it was very tasty without being too filling. Love their coffee. Between the service and the food, it was a great start to both days.
