“Cute Place in Nutley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Cute little cafe in Nutley. Great for breakfast and lunch. Service is just okay. Need to ask to get any refills or anything else you might need ... But still a fun place. I would not do dinner again though ... Just breakfast and lunch.

“Not the best place around ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Menu selections are limited, waiting staff forgetful. Quality of the food is average. Outside seating area offers a pleasant environment. Customers actually are very friendly, it looks like there are a lot of returning customers.
Waiter forgot to bring ordered coffee, then promised not to charge for one, and then still included in the bill.
French toast was average.

“Great coffee and the croissant French toast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is my family's go-to breakfast spot. It's local, the food and coffee are consistently excellent, it has a very warm and inviting atmosphere and the staff is always attentive. I would recommend to anyone who wants a level above the typical diner breakfast- I love the Croissant French toast and their omelettes are fantastic.

“Always GREAT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We have gone here several times since they opened and it's always enjoyable! Whether it's a casual coffee with friends or brunch with family for a special occasion every meal is delicious and the service is perfect. Love the variety of menu choices and there's always something delicious on the specials.

“Excellent Dinner and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

We can with relatively average or slightly above average expectations for the restaurant. It was convenient so we decided to try it.

The food was quite good. Way above average and the prices were not high. I consider the value quite exceptional.

We have one of the "specials" and every course from the soup to desert was very good. Not a 5 star restaurant but one wouldn't expect that here either. Pleasant atmosphere, excellent service, and good food at a reasonable price. Just what we wanted.

Give this place a try. If you like flavored coffee, try their flavored coffee of the day.
