Very chic atmosphere and great coffee. The staff is very friendly and the view is wonderful. I stumbled on the cafe while my husband and I were in the Museum. We did not eat there but on a return visit I most certainly would.

Lawson's landing is tucked away and a little hard to find. How wonderful it was once we were there. The view is tremendous. The food was so delicious and the service (Chris) was friendly and personable. Will definitely be going back.

The only thing better than the food and service is the view. We enjoyed our breakfast on the deck. The 2 eggs, bacon, fruit cup and toast breakfast was a great deal for $6.99. We noticed they are now open for dinner and would love...More
