This has a variety of interesting offerings for lunch like the tomato pie . It is a unique type of restaurant
I like it best if you can sit outdoors.

“Quirky, Interesting Restaurant”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We ate lunch here this week with friends who live in Aiken and were impressed with the quality of the food and the interesting menu. It is in an old house and has a charmingly oddball decor. The owner was friendly and helpful and our server very good. They sell an eclectic array of natural foods and other products. Highly recommend this for lunch.

“Pleasant setting for lunch”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

The restaurant is a short walk from the main stores of historic Aiken. Three of us ate outside which I rarely do but it was a very pleasant surrounding and good weather. The coffee was very good. The food was freshly prepared and tasty. We had salads, soups and wrap sandwiches. The soups were home made. The salad fixings were fresh. No room for desert. The service was good and no one was rushed. Overall a very pleasant meal.

“Interesting restaurant and market!”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

I took a friend here for her birthday. Had planned to go somewhere else but saw this one and decided to try it. It is very cute and artsy looking. I wished we had eaten outside but, was not unhappy with the service on the inside. I had quiche which was served with a salad. It was good. My friend had a tuna wrap which she said was excellent. The best part of the lunch was the chocolate cake that we had for dessert. It was wonderful. If you go to this restaurant, forget everything else and have a cup of their delicious coffee and a piece of the chocolate cake. The owner makes it.
