Folksy atmosphere, mom’s home cooking on the lighter and healthier side. The perfect place to have lunch and recover from the stairs at The Bishops Palace. Get the salad with figs and goat cheese!

Loved dining here. Casual, family-friendly atmosphere. We had tuna steak and the islander slam was so much food☺️! Took lemonade cake to go and later wished we’d bought the whole cake! Wow!

Wonderful food, charming atmosphere. Very historic area and enjoyed an evening on the patio. Priced right. Counter service with staff bringing your food. Enjoy the drive to see the huge historic homes in the neighborhood.

We had a very nice relaxing breakfast there. The crab eggs benedict was very tasty and the pancakes were large, fluffy and delicious, the bacon was very tasty, although not crispy, which I probably should've asked for when ordering. The staff was very friendly.

I went to the cafe for lunch on a Saturday with a large group of friends - 17 total. We arrived at 11:30 and the line was already out the door. It moved relatively quickly. They were kind enough to seat us all together which...More

I don't know why it's named after this very annoying and disease carrying insect. Everything about this quaint, laid back, comfortable eatery was great. More than enough portions, perfectly cooked, and very friendly service all around. The French roast coffee was good, as was the...More

When we were there in March, there wasn't a play area for kids. Just indoor seating and a patio outside in the back for seating as well.
