Our hotel owner had told us of the delicious scones they have. My husband, not a scone lover kind of put going there off. On our way to the airport I decided I needed to try them. Bought 6. Omg, didn't have them until we got home, delicious! Wish I would have gone all week for breakfast.

This place must have changed hands in recent years. It was once one of our favorite restaurants but our last two experiences have been terrible. My $10 salad was small and tasteless and my wife said her quiche was dry and overlooked. We both left hungry and resolved never to return after being customers for ten years. It is far... More

We went here at my sister in laws insistence. We had gone here a few years ago and she liked it so much that she wanted to return. The decor is so soothing and pleasant. Our server was busy but pleasant. Only problem we had was that they no longer make the Southwest Eggrolls, which was my choice. HOWEVER, My... More

My husband and I have stopped by this bakery cafe every day that we have been in Venice for the last week. We always get coffee and a scone. They have the best scones - big, flavorful and fresh. Our favorite place for a quick mid-morning snack. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.

I treated myself to a cranberry orange scone this morning. What a delight ! They serve a wide variety of scones and other pastries. Well worth a visit, even if it's carry out. One thing that has changed is the front counter. I prefer being able to see all of the scones as before, when they were in the front... More

There are so many delicious goodies from which to choose, but a favorite is the lemon squares! It is also a lovely place to have breakfast.

Stopped in for lunch. Waitress said the fish tacos were among the more popular items. Actually should be called cabbage tacos. A sprinking of mahi mahi on top of mounds of cabbage. I have had dozens of fish tacos and these were by far the skimpiest. One reason why people go to chains. For every good local place there is... More

Once a week, just about every week in the year, we pick up 2 scones. Favorites include blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, and apricot and orange. Do note that the blueberry consistently has tons of berries, but all rate 5 stars...it's just 5+. These are the closest we've come to those enjoyed in the U.K. Yummy!
