First visit, I tried the pancakes and was happy. Second time tried the bruschetta wasn't impressed. Coffee was great. Carrot cake was great. Nice secluded area if you don't like pedestrian traffic. Chuck some whipped cream on the milkshake! 😆

The customer service is incredible - especially the little Asian lady. The food was amazing too. But the service was the main highlight, easily the friendliest and most welcoming place I have ever dined at
