Second visit to this cafe and both visits were great. We arrived around 1:00pm both times so the daily specials were sold out, so plan to dine earlier next time. The Castroville salad was really good. I ordered the small and it was about an 8" plate full! The dressing on the salad was really good. Prices reasonable as three... More

Stopped by the cafe since it always seems so packed. The cafe is a vintage home with inside and outside seating. Staff is very friendly. Food is good. A little pricy for lunch.. But tasty. I recommend

We love this bakery. You can smell the heavenly aroma of baked goods before you open the door. They sell their day olds breads and other baked goods for a discount, and they are still delicious. Everything they make is very good.

I just had lunch at this restaurant yesterday. It was a beautiful day, so I sat outside with my uncle and cousin in from Iowa. I've eaten at this place several times and have never gotten anything I didn't like. I mostly eat here for lunch, but have had dinner here as well. The location is great too with some... More

Sat ouside under trees in first cool day of autumn. Basic lunch selections- quiche and sandwiches and a couple of hot dishes. Good chicken salad in croissant- which they toasted at my request. Attentive service

Stopped into this restaurant for lunch. It is in a beautifully restored late 19th century house. Very clean and nicely furnished. We ordered soup salad and sandwiches. There butternut squash soup was creamy and flavorful. I tried their Cuban sandwich. It was very good but could have used more mustard for my taste. Also, very good was the Landmark, beef... More

Love going here, nice place to take the family or a date night. Beautiful outdoor sitting area. Looking forward to the cooler days. Wish they had a more reasonable lunch menu/special, my friends and I who are near would be there more often. Delicious food, a must try.

We sat on the front porch and had great service and great food. I chose the quiche and it was very good. The club sandwich was chosen by someone else in our group and it looked wonderful.
