“I highly recommend ”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

I have visited the Tall and Small on several occasions and never have been disappointed. The walls are teeming with local art and the tables always humming with friendly conversation.The food is always fresh and delightful and the staff are pleasant. The Tall and Small is a great place for a meet and greet with friends or coworkers but also a satisfying change of scenery for someone who works online. I highly recommend stopping by at the Tall and Small for a Turkey Pesto or Greek Salad sandwich combined with a coffee or Italian soda!

“Could be more sanitary”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The coffee and muffins have always been great here . However the last time I was there the waitress had a lot of coins on the counter she was counting. She took my order and prepared same and did not even wash her hands beforehand. What other unsanitary practices are we not seeing at this establishment. I have not returned.

“Lunch at Tall and Small”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Tall and Small is a great venue for a healthy, mostly organic lunch made with a lot of local produce when available. The menu is limited but they have some wicket food there. A very quaint spot but a delight to eat there. If you want vegetarian, gluten free etc, it is the best. Hats off to the owners and will definitely be eating there in the future.

“Never going back”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Used to go here quite often for sandwiches or just a coffee and a quick snack. Last time I was here the service was super slow- but thats minor. While I was waiting in line- having only 2 people ahead of me but waiting 10 mins to be served..I witnessed what was either the owners child, or counter attendants child sneezing, coughing and picking his nose... to go back and maul the goodies in the display counter.. while this was happening no one behind the counter seemed to mind that germs and sickness was contaminating what used to be the best cookies in town. I was so disappointed and disgusted I couldn't drink my coffee. Farewell Tall and Small.
