My daughter and I stopped in for a late lunch. We were there for almost 2 hours enjoying the wonderful food and the atmosphere. Great quiche, soup, pastries, and coffee. The staff was super friendly; local kids poured for the "after school" treats.

Why do lovely places like this ruin it by scrimping on the tea? Really awful undrinkable tea. Get some Barry's or something decent. Lovely cakes and that but ruined by the awful tea.

The nicest brownies I have ever had. The food is amazing and all the staff are so helpful. The soup is delicious and the portion size is quite big and very filling. The selection of salads are always great. The chocolate box is great value

Lovely quaint restaurant, apparently expanding into a larger venue shortly to accommodate a larger restaurant. Lovey coffee and home bake. A busy little restaurant, obviously popular with all

Weary from our wanderings about the hills, trails and streets of this picturesque town, we came across this little coffee shop and were immediately invigorated by its atmosphere and service. Still do not know how we managed to get seated!? Then were suitably rewarded with delicious food and Coffee/Tea.
