You'll love the atmosphere and food/drinks at this cafe. Sunday brunch is packed but worth the wait. They have a great selection of brunch and lunch items and the food is very good. Make sure and try the Mamosa's also...they are great.

We stopped in here for lunch based on reviews and sat at the bar. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed watching fresh juices being made. I had some kind of berry mimosa which was not sweet so for my taste, delicious! I also enjoyed the lobster melt and mushroom florentine soup. Both fabulous. My husband had a beer and the... More

Worth the line too eat here. Food options were great for lunch or breakfast. Vegan options for most dishes and juices with veggies and fruits. Ate here 3 out of 4 days - it was that good.

Even the coffee was good, and that's saying something as my husband and I are coffee aficionados. He LOVED the breakfast burrito. Best he'd ever had, he said. I had my usual bacon and eggs over medium. Thick, tasty bacon... More

Everything on the menu looks good. I've been here a few times, and am always excited to try something new...and they haven't let me down yet. The vegan/vegetarian type meals even looked good, I prolly wouldn't order one myself, but I'd definitely like to try some. One of the top restaurants in town for sure, the only problem is that...

We've eaten here several times over the past few months. It's a local favorite. Their menu serves fresh, creative breakfast and lunch dishes so many options.Service is always friendly and fast and this restaurant has lots more space than the one in Nevada City. My only issue with both is the flies. Wish they could remedy that as it puts... More

Loved the food, loved the staff. Was a great find as a vegetarian. GO! Stayed at the Courtyard Suites which was a block away which I can also recommend.

Started with some great bloody Mary's. We all ordered breakfast burritos. Best Ever btw. The kiddos had the mouse pancakes. Let me say the was a breakfast to remember. We all had enough fuel for our planned hie for the day and felt amazing. Love this place ❤️❤️❤️

Even if you are not a vegeterian, the Nut Burger is a must have. One servings of hand tossed fries with either garlic or other, can easily be shared.
