Love the avocado toast and scones. I come here often for patio breakfasts and luncheons. The iced tea and coffee are perfect.

This tiny little place was an excellent find. Great coffee and delicious breakfast options. Known for their scones and pastries too. Very limited seating inside. Patio tables outside.

A local favorite for coffee and scones. There is mainly outside seating with about 10 tables. We ate there twice and found seating available both times around 9 AM. Great place to sit outside and people watch.
