“Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

We went here for breakfast at the recommendation of friends. It was really fun. Mainly serving locals, this cafe (only open till 3) has a fine menu and a few upscale offerings (such as the baked french toast). Great coffee and a splendid patio. Let the kids use the playground out back and don't miss the ponies! This place is run by two women who deserve real credit.

“Valentine's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Our table of 5 was very impressed with the ambiance, the chef's detailed description of each course and especially the delicious meal. The staff was welcoming and wanting to meet our needs.
Since, most of us were new to the restaurant we were unaware of cash or check policy. This would be helpful to include on the email notice. Wine would have been nice with dinner but we did

Our table of 5 was very impressed with the ambiance, the chef's description of each course, the staff's willingness to meet our needs and OF COURSE, the food which was delicious.

We were unaware of the cash/check only policy so it would be helpful to have that mentioned on the email notices, etc.. Also, Bring Your Own Bottle of wine.

Another suggestion, if soup is one of the courses a soup spoon would be nice saving the teaspoon for stirring or eating dessert. All the coffee drinks found the big mugs easy to handle.

We are looking forward to the next special meal notice. We will spread the good news !!!

Thank you for a very pleasant evening ! What could be better than good food and a table shared with friends?

“A wonderfully unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012

My husband is from the area and we usually stop in for breakfast whenever we are up for a visit. The food is excellent, the service is great and everyone including the customers make you feel very welcome. They have local hand made items for sale, games to play while you are there, and a gorgeous view to enjoy.
