One night we could not fine a light dinner anywhere that had an interesting dessert so we ended up here. Had good salad with organic Plainville turkey and delicious pie. There were so many choices. We had the blue berries, containing blue and black berries. There was also red berries and several other choices and regular bakery items. Topping it... More

not a restaurant that serves coffee. Cafe Mocha was good but far from exceptional. Price is high for what you get.

Things were going pretty well until I got my refill. I had a breakfast wrap which was pretty good. Wi-Fi stuttered a little but basically worked well. It's a cute place in a nice location in downtown Rockland. Staff was friendly though it seemed a little slow. There was a long line when I got there at 8 a.m. on... More

Came in to see a Bluegrass band and grabbed a bear and a grilled cheese. Great vibe in this place and the food and beer was great. I didn't get back to the bookstore, it looked on the small side but I still love the pairing of cafe/bookstore. Definitely a great place to take some time for yourself or to... More

As one other reviewer put it, "Great food, bland service." Consistently slow. I no longer consider this and option for my lunch hour. Even when they are not busy, they tend to be slow.

We stopped on a rainy Sunday and ordered two small Lattes. We watched them being made on the very high end Ranchillio machine by a Barista that really knew what she was doing. They were as near to perfect as we've had. Smooth, strong, and delicious. They roast their own beans, and that makes a big difference too. Clean, modern,... More
