This cafe has the best area to meet friends in their patio. You can meet with people and just have a cup of coffee.

My husband and I stopped here for a quick brunch, mostly because it was such a beautiful day and their patio is just so inviting! Great for people watching. I just love dining outdoors when the weather is perfect. You order at the counter and the workers bring the food to you. They have a pretty large breakfast menu and... More

Prices are a little... More

Too much on the menu to choose from but Salads are good- BBQ chicken sandwich or the Greek wrap are my favorites.

Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday. Town was not crowded, surprisingly, and the restaurant was not full, but it took a pretty long time for our food to come out. Service at the counter was average. Outdoor seating is plentiful, but nothing special, and we never saw anyone wiping down tables(you bus your own table). Menu is big for... More

I love sitting on the patio and watching the world go by while eating a delicious breakfast or lunch. Their Thai chicken salad wrap is great. They make really good oatmeal - very hearty. Also good breakfast wraps and croissants sandwiches.
