This is a great little Cafe with food a significant step up from the ordinary. I had a soup and sandwich combo that had a greens salad, 1/2 reubin sandwich and a beef/ cocous soup with bread pudding for dessert. Brittany was wonderful!

Love the fries and dipping sauce! Space was a little small and price a little high but still an enjoyable afternoon.

Pleasant staff. We were seated without a reservation but it was busy, I would suggest making reservations. The food was very well prepared, and tasty. I had the salmon which was done to perfection. Small portions, so don't bring a heavy appetite. Prices were about average.

Had a really good meal here -- had a hard time believing such a nouveau cuisine place was located in the middle of nowhere. Really good food. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Such great food and service every time we've been. I feel like this restaurant gets overlooked, as a local. However, it's quite delicious, and we'll certainly be back! Great cocktails. The fries and garlic aioli are to die for. Beautiful ambiance.

Had lunch here with my son a few days ago. I had a fantastic salad; he had the veggie burger. Both were really, really wonderful. Very nice ambiance. And, terrific cappuccino as well.

We've eaten here a few times, nice ambience, on the few times we've been there seemed a little over priced in relation to other restaurants around of similar quality, having said that it's a great restaurant and worth a visit.

Thank Nick E
