This is a very quaint café in the middle of downtown. I always order the Taco Salad, it is filled with lots of vegetables, chili, and topped with guacamole and sour cream. It is fabulous!!!!! It also has homemade scones, biscotti and other pastries that are delicious.

I ordered tho Colorado Omelette and it was VERY good. The omelette was very well made and looked amazing once it came off the pan and onto the plate. It was very salty; however, that was because of the garlic that was in it. Entire cloves of crush garlic was thrown into the Omelette and meshed very well with the meat, tomatoes and peppers. To balance the flavours out, you have to consume the toast and have some coffee.

A unique combination I found was eating consuming the toast with jam chasing a bite of the flavourful omelette, followed by a swig of coffee.

The sandwich is BIG (I could use less bread) but the fillings are very generous and extremely tasty with a selection to suit all tastes. 2 people -- 1 full sandwich/ 11/2 sandwich 2 glasses of ice tea /very generous portions, less than $25 .Highly recommend.

The staff are all good people, and very clearly on good terms with their customers and regulars. Very friendly and personable.

The food is great, really creative flavours and a wide selection of food on the regular menu. Sandwiches are huge, and made with freshly baked, local bread. All confections are made in-house and are very tasty. The salads have a good amount of meat on them as well. I always hated adding a chicken breast for $5 or something and it's a tiny dried out piece of meat. Not here, here you get a good sized portion.

The owner is always in and very friendly, often giving sample of things or the odd freebie.

If you're ever passing by it's worth the stop for a great sand which.
