In Solvang for 3 days...checking out the restaurants on Trip Advisor the whole time. Came upon this one, tucked in a very inviting corner of town. We came here looking for breakfast. It's a place you order at the counter and seat yourself. We were...More

I ordered a chicken cobb wrap for take-out which was pretty generous in size, enough to split, with a side. While the food was good, the service was a little on the unfriendly side. Not rude, but just not very welcoming. Not sure I would...More

What a pleasant morning experience with some great coffee in one of the most unique towns in the whole country. Loved sitting at the bistro table outside on a sunny pleasant morning.
