Excellent Coffee..Breakfast and lunch. The only good and reasonable restaurant we found in town! The service is good. The coffee is good and the quiche is homemade. Excellent! Espresso is not that great though.

Noticed this place while visiting the art gallery across the street which was amazing. Sat outdoors (they allow animals) in a relaxed garden while enjoying lunch and the most amazing chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Must try it if it's available. Would highly recommend.

We stopped here for breakfast on my way to Shenandoah and loved it! I had the speciality quiche and croissant and both were delicious! They have lots of coffee options as well. I would definitely recommend stopping in!
