Had a delicious fresh baked strawberry scone and fruit bowl. Comfy, small cafe with very friendly staff. Breakfast and lunch menus offer a nice variety of choices with daily specials. Great service made the meal even better!

I was really looking for that laid back California restaurant experience and I found it right here! Spencer was fantastic and the food even better. I had the Mediterranean Steamer. BTW - Guy Fierri (from Triple D's) did a show from here.

One of the waitresses at the hotel we were staying recommended The Wild Plum to me. It's a small quaint little place with amazing food! I had the Chicken Parmesan sandwich. The organic chicken was so flavorful! The greens on top of the sandwich were so fresh! I ate it open faced because I'm watching my carbs but wow I... More

I was there in the early afternoon for some food. Unfortunately they don't do all day breakfast. The two-page menu was ample, though. It was either house quesadilla with avocado and spinach or 7-oz burger, local grass fed beef, on the house-baked bun. I had the burger with cheddar and home fries. Salad is a side option, either green or... More

This establishment has been serving very tasty and reasonably priced meals at this site for 18 years. Their focus is on breakfasts and lunches. Proportions are large and fresh local ingredients are featured. Their soups are always very tasty and aren't overly salted. Coffee and espresso drinks are of a high quality. The Wild Plum's owner is hard working and... More

I had a delicious fritatta here with sun dried tomatoes, pesto, and cheese. It was delicious as were the home fries. Very nice waitress and good atmosphere. They also bake their bread and other goodiesright there.

We came here for lunch just early enough to miss the crowd. I had the hamburger which was so very superior to the usual hamburger. The classic toppings really showed off the grass-fed beef. The buns was superb as were the homemade fries and pickles. My husband's roasted turkey sandwich with orzo salad was equally delicious. The owner came in... More

Saw a show on triple D on this spot, right before our trip, and was very happy with our visit. The reviews prior were mixed, but my family of three enjoyed each of our meals and bought bakery items for the next few days. Pleasant staff, only down side was the bathroom. It is in the building next door, which... More

We had breakfast there and really enjoyed it. The potatoe skillet was good, my son enjoyed his whole grain waffles and my husband liked his pancakes too. They also have options for gluten and dairy free people. The waitress was so very nice, attentive and caring, it was a great way to start our day!
