I have dined here for lunch several times, and it has been great every visit. I really, really love their chicken salad. There is another place in Aiken that most people like for chicken salad (which I will not name here), but I actually like this better! They make their own bread, which is really good. I've had the roast... More

This is a nice place to go if you like tea or coffee. I meet a friend there for breakfast. Have a great variety of teas, coffee, breakfast items. Sandwiches or salads for lunch. And lots of different pastries. Also make their oun bread which is really good.

This is a great place for breakfast / brunch, the best in town. The service, tea, and food are excellent, and they happily work with vegetarians if you ask for substitutions. The coffee is okay. They've moved to: 967 Dougherty Road, Aiken, SC

This cafe is a great place to go for breakfast or lunch. There are loads of fancy pastries and scones, or you can opt for basic bacon and eggs or quiche. I love to stop in for an afternoon Latte and sit outdoors at an umbrella table, where I have wifi access to check emails, and a cool breeze from... More

I had a small salad and tea. Was amazed when the check was over $15 - plus tip! Well, OK. Pastries are ok.

My wife and I visited the new location on Dougherty Road for lunch. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable time. I enjoyed the Philly Cheese Steak sub. I came stuffed with pieces of stick, cheese, grilled onions and green peppers. It came with a choice of potato salad, pasta salad or chips. I had a generous portion of the... More

We had the ham, spinach and goat cheese crepe,which was womderful. There is a menu of at least forty teas from which to choose. The waitstaff... More

Re-located to 967 Dougherty Road, Aiken, SC. Renovated building with ample parking. Interior is clean, well-lit, and very inviting. Pastries will make you want to come back for more. Stopped in for breakfast; eggs, potatoes, meat, toast, etc. - not their show stopper. But, then again, they're tops in the pastry section!!!!!! Perhaps, they'll get better with the standard fare....
