Cute little place for breakfast, Coffee and Tea. Prices a bit high for basic breakfast, but the atmosphere made up for it.

We stopped here to eat after our trip to the Luray Caverns. We walked in and were initially asked if we had a reservation. The restaurant was pretty full, so not having one, we had to wait about 15 minutes. There was a nice sitting area for us to wait, and we were seated in just about the amount of... More

We stopped by here while we were shopping, on a cold evening, for some coffee, tea, and dessert! We were seated right away! The desserts we had were delicious and the customer service was top notch!

Stopped in after lunch to get a little dessert. Despite being out of the first three pie types I asked for, I still greatly enjoyed what I had. Pie and coffee were delicious.

Attempted to eat here after the caverns but was extremely busy understandably being the time of day. The pastries in the display looked amazing. When we told them party of 8 she said they only have 2 tables that can accommodate and would be approx 45 min wait. Will try again next time.

One of those places where the cheerful decor stimulates home decorators and imaginative young people. The quiches are made in-house and well worth trying. Good coffee.

What a great find in the beautiful mountain of Virginia. A hip vibe is felt immediately when entering this main street cafe/coffee shop. The menu is fresh and modern with a good variety of choices. Prices are reasonable. The fried green beans are a must. And and window front table is a great way to watch the action on main... More

My wife and I had a late lunch here. She ordered the Dijon, a tuna fish salad on croissant and a cup of the tomato basil soup (bisque). I had the grilled cheese panini with a bowl of the tomato soup. My wife thought that her sandwich was pretty average. It came with tomato and lettuce. My panini was basically... More

Great spot for a coffee and a sweet treat. We did not have any of the meals so I cannot vouch for them but it all looked good. Crumb cake was amazing!
