Two of us stopped for lunch on a road trip that took us through Osage Beach. Most of the tables were filled, but we were seated quickly. Our waitress brought menus and took our drink order promptly; my wife just ordered water to drink. While the waitress got our drinks, we noticed the plates at other tables contained huge portions. Not wanting to eat too much on a long car ride, we decided to split an entree. When the waitress returned, we ordered one entree and a bowl of soup on the side. From that moment on, our server was cold. She brought our food but then was pre-occupied by other customers and didn't return. We had to get her attention three times, once for help, again to bring our check and a third time to pick up the check. From the decor, the menu, the prices, the atmosphere and the extra touches on the food dishes, it appears that this restaurant is trying to be an "upscale" eatery. I guess people who split meals are just not upscale. The food was great so we still had a good meal and I would return. We usually leave a 20% tip for good service, but even though the check prompts for 15%, 20% and 25% we left a 10% tip. I guess were not upscale tippers either.

Had the Flatbread Breakfast-great. Service fast and efficient. Serve yourself coffee bar is a great idea! Will return.

This restaurant/bakery offers the expected and more! Regular and specialty coffees, standard eggs and biscuits and gravy but also different kinds of eggs benedict and French toast, and omelettes. Everything is well-prepared, and I loved the Apple cider mimosa! All in a cozy, comfortable atmosphere with a store full of neat stuff in the back, so you can browse while you wait for your food to arrive, which isn't long!

We come here about once a month for brunch and it always consistently delicious! Best to get here early in the morning to avoid the rush or the wait times can get a bit long. Don’t miss the House Grande Latte! It’s sinfully wonderful!!!

This wonderful restaurant was highly recommended by friends and I am happy to report that it exceeded our expectations.

We first visited it for brunch and liked it so much we returned a few days later for lunch. On each occasion, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and as described on the menu. They offer an assortment of wine, beer and other adult beverages at a fair price.

The stylish restaurant is decorated with casual elegance and includes a wonderful bakery with a variety of beautiful baked goods to eat onsite or carry out. They also have a small store with lovely kitchen and food items.

We would like to thank our servers, Vicki and Elizabeth, who were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They made our dining experience pleasant and fun.

If you are looking for a restaurant in the Ozarks with an upscale feel, great food and excellent personal service, this is the place for you!
