I can always count on the food to be great!!! Instead of roasted potatoes (which I love), you can substitute roasted veggies. To die for!!!! The bakery section is decadent!!!!

Description
We are a family owned and operated cafe. We began as a bakery and over the years have added our love of great homemade food to our menu. Each location has a bakery, complimentary homemade chips and salsa bar, and complimentary fruit infused water. We make everything from scratch, just like we cook for our kids at home. Try our pancakes, the crepes, the Belgian waffle, or any of our favorites and meet the amazing people that work with us to ensure we are spreading love one meal at a time! With love, Denica and James Freitas
