It's a great place for a coffee or tea and a bite to eat with friends and chew the fat. Might be a little pricey but it's cozy. Wide variety of coffees and teas. Good food.

All of the food was fresh and the service was friendly and welcoming. The cafe is sunny and open with lots of windows. I love the coffee cabinet. The Egg Salad Sandwich on Sunflower bread was delicious. I loved the Lemon Tart too. I'd definitely recommend a stop here for lunch or just a drink and dessert.

I had a very bad and affronted experience in this cafe! I felt very angry and disappointed when the waitress told me that i have to leave just because someone wanted to take my table right after I have my lunch! I have never been told I have to leave immediately when I finished the food by any restaurant and... More

Susan and her wonderful staff are always busy putting their heart into every order. I am here many times a week for a quick bevy but also use them for catering and if my schedule allows a great lunch. Absolutely everything they can make from scratch they do and you can actually taste that they put their heart into making... More

A beautiful cafe with a great selection of loose-leaf teas and four really impressive rosemary plants.

Been there several times for business meetings or just to meet with friends and EVERY TIME the staff was delightful. The coffee is great and the sweets... you need to have someone to hold you back, for real. Love the place!

You order and pay at a counter, then they either deliver it to your table or you pick it up. They don't have a big menu; just a couple of pasta salads (cold) and sandwiches are their specialties, but they need to switch them up once in awhile.. Nice place to go for coffee and dessert. Doesn't seat a large... More
