great find for coffee, a snack, lunch, or early dinner. Seating inside or out, friendly staff! Low-key, comfort food vibe, downtown Main St location.

I love the scratch biscuit breakfast sandwich! Leave the diet at home. But it is a tasty albeit casual way to enjoy outdoor dining snd watch the world go by

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. While I usually order a salad and 1/2 sandwich combo, everyone seems to enjoy their food and they offer a wide selection beyond sandwiches. The staff is always friendly and accommodating, even when the place gets crowded. That would be the only issue... if you are determined to get a table for... More

Wonderful stop for those hooked on coffee like my husband and I. Small, cozy, great food cooked to order.

This is the kind of eatery where you order at the counter and they bring it to your table. There was a menu on the board and there were examples in the glass display at the counter. I ordered the Chicken Caesar Wrap on display for $9.95. I was charged 12.95. When I pointed out the discrepancy, he said the... More

This is a typical coffee house/cafe of the modern era. The menu is posted on a board above your head and very hard to read quickly for a first timer. When the coffee machine and TV are going full blast, it is very noisy in here. The menu has salads and pizza you can find anywhere but the prep is... More

The atmosphere of this cafe was very inviting but the food was just average. I went for breakfast and had the breakfast burrito, it wasnt bad it just wasn't anything special.

They have really good breakfasts. I like their breakfast sandwich that is served on a freshly made biscuit. Good coffee drinks too!

You would not know it from the outside, but this place has great non-traditional pizzas. A very exotic selection and great tasting. Yes, this place is more for coffee and dessert, but they also provide great tasting sandwiches. A very busy place on weekends so seating is sometimes a chore. Nice atmosphere.

The best thing about this place, and what keeps us coming back is the location. That, followed by the very friendly staff. Otherwise, the food is ok and the new coffee machine makes terrible lattes. The fruit smoothies are really slurpies. I want to like this place as I eat there a lot and it's awesome to sit outside, but... More
