We enjoyed the food that we ate but the prices were higher than expected. I had a bowl of clam chowder, and my daughter had the veggie sandwich and we had a pot of tea. I think the bill was about 40.

Enjoyed just early afternoon piece of homebaked berry pie with some wine and breakfast one morning. Staff is wonderful and food is delicious....use to be Olga's before it burned down, and now Catkin Cafe has risen from the ashes to surpass what was there before.
