If you're in the mood for coffee AND food - this is the place to go. They have crepes and pizza that can be made gluten free. They have wraps and sandwiches too I believe, but I always go straight for the savory crepe. Nice seating area on the bridge with cucumber water or lemon water (or plain, if that's... More

We had the spinach salad and a pesto based pizza. The food was excellent and the view was terrific. The restaurant and shops are built on an old bridge. Great views and great food.

We grabbed a quick lunch here while we were shopping and we're so pleased with the amazing food! Also loved that I could have a glass of wine in the "mall". Although there are a lot of empty spaces this is a great location and a fun place to shop.

We enjoyed a great sandwich called the grinders...which included a choice of salads and gelato for dessert...for about $10. What a deal...and it was enough for the two of us to share. A great spot to sit on the bridge and also do a bit of shopping after lunch.

This place is much more than a coffee shop. It's a perfect place to meet for lunch , especially when the weather is cold and cloudy. The whole place is full of light & sits above Sand Creek. They offer soups, salads, and a whole lot more. The espresso drinks are delicious and the variety is amazing. I love this... More

The food here is outstanding. You order at the counter and they serve you at your table. I usually go for a wrap but they have salads and soups and sandwiches and gelato and pastries and coffee. It's very fast service if you are in a hurry but the quality of the food is very high. Everything fresh and made... More

We like this establishment because it opens at 700AM and it is located near the water. It is calm and serene at that time of the morning.
