I dropped in for Sunday lunch and was immediately greeted by a wonderful display of pastries. So hard to choose which one or ones to try when they all looked so delicious. Settled for a couple of fruit tarts and a lemon cake that was so moist - yum. I had a cafe sampler of half quiche, soup, and salad which a great bargain and allowed me to have a bit of variety. The quiche was a bit bland (egg/spinach), but the cream of mushroom soup was some of the best I've had in a while (I would go back just for this soup!). The dining area was cozy, and tables were cleaned quickly to avoid waiting to sit. Good overall value and quality.

Got together with some friends for lunch al this place. The food options were great, and the dessert options were even nicer. Great pastries.

This is a great place for a leisurely lunch, but you can have breakfast and dinner there as well. The thing I like about it is that you can sit there for hours, alone or with friends, and they pretty much leave you alone. The menu is what you might expect from a Panera-like place, but I think this food is a bit better. Stop in and see for yourself.

Visited, yet again, for a brunch with my family...

The food, especially the quiches, is fresh, hot and delicious! The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

There is lots of good seating, even for a wheelchair-bound patron. There is handicapped parking right in front! Try to get near the fireplace!

Once you get used to the cafeteria ordering process, it's worth it because the salads are huge and delicious with great ingredients, the potato galette is amazing, and don't get me started on the desserts! Don't pass up the turkey options they feature during the holidays, they are way better tha. You can make at home!
