We happened to be staying directly across the street and lucked into this find (new location is on State Street). Good lattes and baked goods. We went back for breakfast and lunch. My Monte Cristo was wonderful! A huge improvement from the hotel breakfast offering.

Food was delicious. Ladies room was disgusting. When I mentioned it to an employee she laughed and said they’ve been busy. She could have just said thank you we will take care of it.

My husband and I hadn't been there since the remodel, so we checked it out. Great atmosphere and amazing food... from the soups to the macaroni & cheese to the variety of desserts (we couldn't decide so we took a few home).

This may be one of the most interesting places to eat in Rockford- food wise. Great menu. We love the fish tacos, monte cristo and Baja pizza. Lots of great and interesting choices with good prices!

We visited for lunch on a Sunday. The place was very busy but we didn't feel ignored, nor were we waiting long for our orders. My soup and sandwich were great. In my part of the country Panera Bread runs similar eateries. You can enjoy...More

It's a chain... But good food, nice employees and fast service keeps us going back for more. As usual it's a bit pricey, but you get little extras that place it above other similar restaurants.

Who even does Swedish Pancakes any more. EXCELLENT!!! Bakery is amazing. Staff were great, happy and helpful. I love going somewhere that the staff are happy, it says a lot about the establishment and the management. Breakfast was amazing. Decor was wonderful and clean.
