We always seek out places that support local with product, and give back to the community! We had a rockstar, energy packed breakfast here. Flavors were bursting and super satisfying. Feels good to support restaurants that aren't just about themselves!! Plus you always feel good after you eat at these places! It matters where your food comes from!! More restaurants... More

Don't let the location put you off from this terrific, socially and environmentally aware, gem of a cafe. The menu selections are original creations based on locally sourced ingredients. In the summer, they grow much of their produce, hence the garden in the back. Service was good, the food delish. I had the harvest salad and loved it. They make... More

Great patio, great coffee, quaint neighborhood, cyclist/granola people/buddhist feel (minus any of the body odor you might associate with this sector), and some really tasty food. A bit pricey, but you're splurging by going out to breakfast, right? Not far from the old mills on the Mississippi, if it's a nice morning to poke around outside. Local ingredients really made...

If you would like to spend a beautiful sunday morning in a café that has the atmosphere of a high school cafeteria and the hospitality of a federal prison this is the place for you. The cook staff serves up great food but I felt like a Hereford in a herd.

It was a Saturday and the place was hopping, as usual. We had not been there in a couple years. Service was great, always friendly even with all the hustle and bustle. I ordered a hamburger (real meat). It was so dry, like the opposite of a juicy lucy. And they only put tiny spoonful of their catsup on it.... More

On our first trip to this cafe, we were hoping for a brunch with good coffee. We received a treat beyond what we expected. My order of eggs Benedict had perfectly poached eggs, tender ham and a hollandaise sauce that was exceptional without dominating the entire marriage of eggs, muffin and ham. Instead, the ingredients combined for a breakfast of... More

This place is a gem! Staff is friendly and food is amazing. Lots of vegetarian options in a really bright warm setting. Bakery had amazing baked goods and the latte was delicious. Fresh food, worth every penny.

My family didn't agree on our experience here. While I loved it, son and hubby were not that fond of it. They deemed it too crunchy granola. I suppose one should know that before they here. You not going to get the traditional greasy spoon breakfast. This is local, farm fresh healthy goodness. I had the Savory waffle with Parsnip,... More
