Not sure why people like this place. We tried it after we were there a few years ago and figured we'd give it another chance. Not sure how the health dept. passes this place. Lots of weird crap on the tables that look like they...More

That's really too bad you feel that way. We are located in a building that was built in the 1930's. Age can either make a restaurant charming or not to some people. As for the food, I don't know what you ordered but I do...More

Thank you so much for this kind review. Hope to see you again very soon. As the summer ends we will have a lot more space at the counter. Things slow down as the food heats up. Take good care. Hedy

This place is fantastic. Tiny little restaurant but worth the wait. The food is out of this world and the service is very good. Prices are very reasonable. It's impossible to get a bad meal here.

Comfort breakfast at its finest! A tiny, quaint joint where locals come to meet and dish. And eat. On dishes. Or not—we usually take the dog for a walk and hubby runs in to get egg sandwiches, home fries and coffee to go. Soooooo good....More

Description
Cute little eatery with lots of interesting food choices. We serve organic and farm fresh meals that are creative and nourishing to the soul! Kid love the kids meals and we cater to vegetarians-vegans. We go to the regional market ourselves to insure the products are the fresh and straight from the farm. We have an extensive black board that features and describes healing teas that change with each season. Each season we offer a class on Energetics of Food based on Traditional Chinese Medicine that will forever change the way you look at each meal! Once a month we do a dinner for charity. 100% of the funds go to do clean potable water projects around the world and Hedy (the owner) travels to many of these locations with Rotary clubs. If you are looking for decadent sweets our Cinnamon bun French toast or stuffed pancakes are amazing! We would love to cook for you so I hope you will stop by on your next travels! Peace and happy eating!
