Ate early on the morning we were about to head back home. Had pastries the morning before in anticipation of a large brunch. Sit down service was friendly, efficient and welcoming. Food was delicious.

I like a look and traditional furniture setup. Also seating in veranda part of cafe makes you feel good. My choice of food included black bean soup and their signature sandwich "Senator's tuna" was very good. Actually I like the soup very much, it was a delicious one. The service was a bit sloppy, but overall good.

Went for breakfast this am. Food was delicious and fresh. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is the wicker table we were seated at was quite small an uncomfortable. Our waitress Martina was wonderful. She checked on us frequently very kind and happy.

The salmon salad with Cajun spicing is our favorite. We get to for take away when we leave. The fruit pie is also excellent and the service good.

We had booked room with breakfast option. Nicely lit and decorated with historical elements. Our waitress was nice, but difficult to understand at times. I had to ask several times for our glass of OJ that we had ordered only to find out a different server had delivered to a different table. The container she gave us for the left... More

They provided great coffee choices and all the staff were very friendly. The service was fast for take-away or dinning in the café.
