Went here for lunch, got the quiche, a cookie, the veggie wrap, a London fog, and iced tea. Everything was very good! All fresh and healthy. Loved the building and the service.

This is a lovely modern cabin that includes a dining room with a lending library and a fireplace for winter. Weather permitting you can eat outside on the covered front porch.
There's lovely art on the walls - much of it for sale - and the bathroom is a must see. I couldn't believe how a little paint on the ordinary towel and toilet paper dispensers really jazzed them up. As for all those funky salt and pepper shakers you see in antique shops (elephants, watermelons, chiles, etc.)...well, some of them are here gracing the tables. Not your typical breakfast place in that the menu includes quiche, breakfast sandwiches, a German breakfast, etc. Everything was fresh and handmade with many of the ingredients coming from their own farm which is just up the road. The staff could not have been cheerier or friendlier.

My wife and I just visited this cafe for a late lunch. It is a charming building built of logs, with some limited seating outside, where your dog is welcomed. There is a large inside dinning area toward the north side. The staff is polite and helpful, and all sported a big smile. The vegetables come from their garden and have the taste of freshness that is an unmistakable treat. I had their humus platter, which was far better than many I have had in a number of Mediterranean restaurants. The humus had an excellent flavor and the vegetables were tasty. The eggplant was warmed and very fresh to the taste. I usually avoid eggplant, but this one was choice. The wheat bread was sliced small and toasted just right. I also had an Americano decafe coffee, which came in a giant cup and was piping hot. The fixings for the coffee is inside across from the cashier. My wife had a Greek salad which was also a tasty treat.
This cafe is open for breakfast and lunch only. They do serve breakfast all day, but make sure you make it before 4 pm or be disappointed. We will be back to this pleasant cafe in the near future, I am sure.

Skimpy portions. Side of fruit was 4 grapes. I was not expecting wraps and panini at a farm fresh place. Only cookies or muffins for dessert.

Very different from any other breakfast place. You order and pay at a small counter and most food and drink is served to the table. There is a large variety of coffees, teas and natural soft drinks. Menu is small but interesting. My husband loved the breakfast burrito and I had the "special toast" with cream cheese and homemade raspberry jam.
Breakfast and lunch "all" day.
