We always order the salmon and salads...these are wonderful. The freshly made bread served with jams is always a treat. Be sure to make reservations because this place fills quickly.

This local cafe is simply scrumptious. A variety of unique dishes will tickle your fancy. The eclectic atmosphere will charge your spirit. Parking is iffy but it is worth a walk to enjoy this culinary experience.

This was a super place for breakfast. The food was awesome. Omelet was the best I have ever eaten. Fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade bread and jam. I can't wait to return. It's pricey but worth it. Staff was wonderful.

I did call but I also emailed too. They answered email on same day. So send an email. I do not know why phone not working except call during early morning. That is when I called. Wish I could help more.

There is a very small lot in the back for handicapped parking. We found it fairly easy to park on the street.
