“Love the Pizza”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Pizza is fantastic. Hot and delicious from the outdoor oven. Carrie and Aaron make you feel totally at home. And the Peanut Butter Bliss Bar totally rocks!

“Great find..!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for a quick lunch with a friend. We both had the smoked meat panini. It was delicious. It was a hot day and patio seating was perfect. You go inside and place your order and staff deliver it to your table. Service was friendly and prompt. Admittedly the menu is limited (3 paninis). From 5 pm, they offer pizzas. Would definitely make another stop at The Purple House.

“Great Food and Friendly Ambiance”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

First of all, the food is excellent and at a reasonable price. The Purple House Panini is chock full of great ingredients - such as portabello mushrooms - blended in such a way as to be absolutely delicious. There is a wide choice of beverages, including some soft drinks not usually found anywhere but Europe. The deserts are great.
It was raining, so we ate inside. The decor is 50's kitchen furniture, with papers, magazines, books and nice music.Somehow it all fits the mood of the food.
The staff are top-notch and cool.
Ask about their garden and be wowed with answers about growing banana plants and overwintering them.
It's a gem.

We got off our river cruise and heard straight to the café for something to eat. The service was very friendly and our paninis were delicious!
A great experience!
