“A taste of local cuisine”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Nice little place. Emmy Lou cares about the food she serves and it's apparent from the first bite.
Very tasty! It's a bit of Canon City that a lot of people miss.
Recommended if you have visitors from out-of-town and you want to show off the local cuisine.
Signs are a little inconspicuous, so look closely. Right next to Lincoln Park Fitness.

Open 8 - 2 Tues thru Sat

“Great little non-burger place to eat a great meal!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

This is a cute little cafe run a pretty young lady named Emmy Lou who is your server as well as head chef.

The cuisne is varied and all is good. The portions are on the large side and the cost on the small side.

If you are into butterflys then this is not the place for you. If, on the other hand you like dragonflies then you are in for a treat as they abound everywhere!

The location could be better but once you find this place, you will be back!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Amazing!!! Emmy Lou runs the adorable little cafe herself and does all the cooking. Prices are extremely reasonable. The food is phenomenal!!! I had the Azteca and my boyfriend had the tacos. The flavors were out of this world! Homemade salsa to top it off! Highly recommend this place. Makes me wish we lived here so we could enjoy it again!
