I love this cafe. It's easy to stop in for lunch or dinner during the week and the bread, from the bakery next door, is absolutely terrific. I had the dark and delicious savory tomato soup and the absolutely outstanding chicken pot pie ($18) which...More

At first glance seemed great as it was obviously well received by many patrons. Turned out to be very crowded and loud. Menu seemed to be a combination of limited breakfast items and lunch combined. A second part of the restaurant seemed it might have...More

I got an upset stomach after eating their sweet corn soup. The brunch is nothing more than average and it is TOO expensive. Definitely not worth the price at all. The coffee was absolutely terrible.

Ok, I thought I would try them one more time. What a mistake. First, I must say the food was good, but that was it. The service was lousy. They need to hire more help so we can be served in a normal fashion. Waited...More

Great place for a great brunch. Offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The indoor dining room is very nicely done. The food is California. It is good, if not great. The cornbread is the best I ever had. The place gets busy so a reservation...More
