Just had a Bloody Mary but it was delicious and if we hadn't already eaten, we would have definitely tried the food. Friendly local place that I'll visit again. They don't take American Express, which is my only complaint.

Had breakfast on a busy Saturday morning in June. The staff was very accommodating to our 3 year old twins. Provided coloring books and crayons. Food was very good - loved the omelets!!!

Great Bloody Mary! Excellent cinnamon roll. They are probably the best caterers in town, they made my wedding run so smoothly and they felt like family! I would recommend highly!

We wanted to eat in town and this cafe had such an interesting menu. I enjoyed the cinnamon roll, and my husband had the pancake. It was indeed bigger than the plate. It’s a good place for breakfast in this historic city.

The food was tasteless. The syrup for the waffles tasted like sugar water with caramel coloring. Eggs were poorly prepared. The waffle tasted like a cheap mix. We left half the food on our plates. Disappointing.
