It was our first time eating here and we both loved it. The service was great and the tomato soup Florentine with the half grilled chicken salad sandwich was delicious. We will definitely come back.

Every time We are in Sanford we make a point to visit this fantastic cafe. The Florentine tomato soup is thick and delicious. Vegan as well. The owners are friendly and accommodating to vegans. Food is gourmet quality at a very reasonable cost.
