My friend and I stopped here after I got off the train and she was picking me up. We wanted to get a quick bite to eat before heading to a bachelorette party. It is so absolutely adorable inside this spot! It has a very homey coffee house kind of vibe. I felt like I was in my grandmother's living room; that's how cozy and comfortable it was.

You order at the counter and they bring you your food if you ordered anything hot. My friend got eggs on toast and I got an almond croissant and a lavender scone (couldn't chose between the two!). I actually had a really tough time choosing a pastry in general. They all looked incredible.

My pastries were amazing. My friend enjoyed her eggs of toast throughly! They also have a small menu of cooked items and some grab and go type of stuff. Loved this place!

The people are friendly, the food great, and the location convenient-- about 100 feet from the train station.

Parking is available in the back.

Had a delicious bahn mi and good coffee here. They also have a small upscale grocery section with cheese, prepared items, drinks, etc., as well as kombucha on draft. It is in a renovated house so the atmosphere is cozy and cool and the cheerful staff make it very inviting, but there isn't a lot of seating and it gets a little crowded in the area where you wait for your food. I would have liked to have gone two days in a row, but they were unfortunately closed on day two due to special circumstances.

Located In the old Katonah library that was re-situated for the reservoir, the reading room has a warm reading room vibe.

The coffee is the best around and the baristas are also. They seem to carefully pick their friendly and hardworking staff.

They also offer pastries, sandwiches and salads. The are famous for their avocado toast and falafels.

They also offer packaged gourmet foods, fresh breads and soups.

They do carry cookbooks and magazines. They have a sister shop near the train station.

Limited seating so best to come early or late for lunch. Always enjoyable . Lovely staff and owners.

Recommend parking on the street. Only 4 spaces in the back.

Thank Ann B
