Great local place to go for some great made from scratch cooking. It's busy but they will take care of you. The Woodie Guthrie omelet is a must try.

Greg makes THE best oatmeal hands down! Everything is made or brewed with tender loving care! A warm and cozy atmosphere.

Lunch is very creative and healthy; quiches, salads, wraps. Choice of coffees, teas and other fancier hot drinks is great. Good place to meet your friends for lunch if you are into wholesome good food.

Best mocha of my life! Cozy, comfy surroundings, where people seem to know each other. We first stopped here on our way up north; we liked it so much, we planned our route back to include another stop at Great Northern Coffee Traders.

We went twice, once for breakfast and once for an afternoon break. Very nice coffee house atmosphere, excellent coffee and tea choices. The owners are on site and make sure their guests are comfortable.

This is a nice rustic restaurant with great coffee, great pastries, and some amazing quiches in addition to regular breakfast. The prices are reasonable. The hours are a bit limited however, so check ahead. Right now they are Wednesday - Sunday 8-3.

I met some friends here for coffee. It was mid-morning. Many tables were taken, but there were still openings. Nobody was in line ahead of me, so my order went quick. I did not try the food, but the regular coffee was very good. I did get a chipped mug, but it wasn't any big deal. I just drank from... More

When there are as many locals as tourists you know you are in the right place. The coffee I had was excellent - felt like I was at a local coffee shop back home. We didn't eat there, but many were enjoying some of their menu.

Great coffee shop with great food. Definitely recommend. My son had an omelet and said it was the best he has ever had. Have eaten there many times - everyone should try it!

We waited in line for about 20 min (only 4 orders ahead of us) but lady taking orders was slow as molasses. We finally got to front of line to order and was told that the "grill needed to rest" and they would not even start to make any sandwiches for 35 to 40 min. This was at about 1230.... More
