Cute little place right on the main street. Each table has a 'daily soup calendar' with a pair of reading glasses hanging on it. Quite thoughtful! The food was very healthy, fresh and wholesome. Two portion size options are provided. My husband and I both opted for the "smaller" portions and were glad we did. Very reasonably priced.

When I visit Joseph this is my breakfast place. In summer it's wonderful to sit outside to dine. Love the service and the food!

This is the kind of place that is worth waiting for. It's a pretty tiny place that also has some outside seating. I don't remember what we had, but I do remember that we both really enjoyed our meals. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's a place where they make a lot of things from scratch and the results...

Had one of their breakfast specials, big enough to share, friendly staff, reasonable pricing. my only question is, who serves toast dry, and not hot enough to melt butter (after a special request is made)? was that an oversight, or is it the new way breakfast toast is served these days? (don't go out for breakfast that much). Anyway, would... More

We love to stop here for breakfast as we leave following our annual week in the woods! Breakfast is solid and consistently good, coffee is Seattle's Best and bottomless, and their home-made cinnamon roll is best shared ... a great cinnamon flavored roll topped with whipped buttercream frosting. Small space, so you might have to wait on a busy morning.... More

Our breakfast was really good we had to set outside because it was full inside a little chilly but would be nice on a warm day. Server was extremely they... More

We had a delicious breakfast. I had a veggie omelet with crispy fries and husband had eggs with French toast and sausage patty. It is very small with not a lot of tables. Our only complaint was the heat was cranked so high it was roasting.

This is a small restaurant with very great food and very good service. I tried the crepes and foud them to be delicious and covered with berries. My wife tried the veggie scramble with a large fruit cup. Delicious! We will probably go back for breakfast here while we are in the area.

We have eaten here in 2008 and again recently. It is so good that we want to give it a positive review for travelers to this part of Oregon.
