Wendel's hits a home run every time with their food quality! You can't get a bad meal there. Only problem is, is the tight quarters and limited places to sit. Throw in a loud atmosphere and you want to eat and get out quick! In...More

If you're tired of the same old franchise experience, then Wendel's could be for you. It smells right, looks right and the goods taste right too. It's crowded because it's good, it's worth finding the time that works for you and becoming a regular... If...More

We are visiting from N.Z and enjoyed a great coffee here AND yummy lemon meringue dessert. Also nice to browse the bookstore. A very busy cafe on Sunday but well worth the wait

We've tried getting in there several times but it's a very small place, always crowded, some tables and chairs outdoors, smells wonderful in there with the aroma of coffee. Because it's so crowded and very long lines we have never had anything to eat there,...More

Wendel's nourishes hungry minds and bodies as an independent bookstore and fresh-food café. The café lavishes readers with a menu of fresh fare made in-house that eschews preservatives and accommodates dietary needs with wheat-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options. An outdoor patio puts patrons in prime reading, people-watching, or espionage-conducting position to enjoy local scenery along with breakfast selections such as organic blueberry pancake and omelettes. Lunch and dinner selections span hand-held bites such as the chicken-and-avocado wrap and heartier dishes such as wild-salmon-and-asparagus salad. Coffee and espresso creations range from lattes and cappuccinos to mocha frappes and are brewed with beans from local roaster Moja Coffee and water from the local fountain of youth.
