Convenient quaint little cafe when visiting the Oakdale arboritum. While light lunches are available the standouts are their desserts and coffee. Also, their salads are a meal in themselves and trully are EXCEPTIONAL.

I have been here several times. They make great sandwiches, bakery goods and soups. It is all fresh, great service. Order at the counter, pay and they will deliver it to your table. Best to go early for lunch as there is often a line.
