Quaint setting, coffee and tea in abundance (self serve), and a lengthy brunch and lunch menu. Eggs benny came with delicious pan fries and my boyfriend ordered the pancakes with eggs and bacon. Best brunch we've had in a long while, and only $15 each.

What a great place for breakfast or lunch. Slightly quirky but great atmosphere! I liked the old ornaments/appliances from forgotten times that adorn this cafe. Great value for money!

We were due for a lunch break and hit Golden at the right time. We like to support local restaurants or cafes when we can. This location was in town and appeared interesting and funky at first glance. It was very casual and we were...More
