Ventured into Altavista in search of something better than a fast food chain. We found it. Excellent steak panini and Philly cheesesteak. Tea excellent. Chips....were chips. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good choice.

Reservations were made and tables were set up for us, a group of about 25 people. We made our orders at the counter, and service was prompt. The food was fresh and delicious. There were no complaints.

We go here for lunch every few weeks or so. Their sandwiches are excellent, provided from a imaginative and changing menu -- healthy, tasty, satisfying. Coming with a large group? Call ahead and reserve the vault room in the former bank. Run by a well known local couple and their always smiling associates. Clean, and relatively quiet for a sandwich... More

Go for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Go for a business meeting. Go for coffee and cookies anytime, and every visit you're greeted with smiles, super friendly service, delicious food and THE BEST COFFEE EVER.

The Cafe has taken off as a local gathering place in town. Wonderful coffees (staff has had barista training) and delicious sandwiches and snack items. Don't miss the scrumptious harvest cookies!
