Very cute little cafe with a wide, eclectic offering of breakfast and lunch offerings. I had the "Old Salt" which is a soft pretzel topped with creamed chip beef. It was very tasty. Great service with a homey feel.

I went there for lunch today expecting something great and found their food to be good but ordinary. Nothing outstanding. So I gave it 3 stars.
