We enjoyed high-quality, freshly made food, including delicious salads, quiche, fresh carrot juice and baked goods. Recommended!

Food here is always wonderful, although sometimes there is quite a wait especially around lunch hour. I love the Greek salads and pulled pork nachos. For gluten free patrons: They have quite a few options for meals that are gluten free. They also have gluten...More

We got two great sandwiches and a couple of different pastries. We especially liked the apricot pastry but everything was quite good.

We were vacationing in the area and wanted breakfast. We stopped and ordered muffins, a veggie breakfast sandwich and a breakfast burrito. The burrito was tasty and big. The muffins were just ok and the veggie breakfast sandwich was fair. I think it's a little...More

Between the "one-way sections of the US 101 in Crescent City, make this stop for an excellent quick bite & coffee. Whether traveling North or South, access is easy. Breakfast sandwich, quiche or bakery items to go can satisfy you on the coastal drive!

One of the best kept secrets in town. Seek them out and try the Bahn Mi sandwich. I can almost promise you have never tried this sandwich anywhere else. Their bakery items are the best in town too.

My husband and I had breakfast here one morning when we spent an overnight trip on the coast. If we had stayed more than one night, we would have happily enjoyed coming back here for another meal, and another breakfast, too! It's small and there's...More

Had the pesto sandwich for lunch at my job interview last week. The people at the office said that is one of the best choices from Vita Cucina. It was still warm when arrived and slightly crispy. It was very good. I'm sure it would...More

The lady at the visitor's center indicated this was close to us. We stopped in for coffee and pastries to soothe our sweet tooth.. The coffee was very good, but the pastries were beyond belief. The portions were huge. We enjoyed the leftovers later. Great...More

Culinary Institute of America trained chefs/owners Devon & Michelle Morgante. We love to cook and bake everything from Michelle’s quiches, morning glory and bran muffins baked daily to my house cured and smoked pastrami, ham, turkey and bacon. We bake all of our own breads: focaccia for our turkey, Cuban, breakfast sandwiches and specials; I also bake what we call an artisan loaf which is slightly sour and a sour dough loaf that is made from a starter I created using blackberries from my backyard. The menu change weekly and reflects the cravings of the cooks. On Thursdays and Fridays nights after 4:00 pm we serve pizzas. Top your pizza pie with some of our homemade topping like: pesto, garlic white sauce, sausage (yes, I grind my own sausages), roasted garlic, roasted mushrooms, smoked chicken, roasted pork and locally made Rumiano cheese. Thank you for your time
