Great place for coffee and light breakfast. Extremely busy during the week, my last visit was on a Sunday, and it was not as busy.

I was here a few months ago and wrote a review that was pretty negative because of the staff. The atmosphere was ruined because of it and I didn't enjoy my time, but I tried it out again and I'm so happy I did! The staff is fantastic, the coffee is amazing, the desserts are delicious and the tea is... More

Easy spot to sit down or carry out a healthy breakfast. There is a nice choice of coffee/tea. Vegetarian options available. Gorgeous bakery options like muffins and scones. Everything is reasonably priced and service is quick.

Wow, I wish this cafe was in my hometown. Great breakfast spot, tasty breakfast sandwiches, friendly staff, good coffee, strong wifi. The white marble table tops give place a nice ambiance. Highly recommend

This restaurant is very cute and has a great location, however in the morning the girl that's always behind the counter shares a flat expression and lacks both hospitality and helpfulness. I ordered tea which was cold- twice. I had to ask for my pastry to be heated up, which I was curtly told I could go into a back... More

Stopped in after walking by w/ colleagues while in town for conference. Fantastic breakfast paninis and ready made ham and gruyere croissants were amazing. Flakiness of croissant was perfect. Excellent value. Talked about the place to all the other conference attendees.

While on business to downtown Sacramento I found myself near the Convention Center at lunchtime. This is usually not a good time to find a quick bite to eat. However, within a couple of blocks of the Convention Center I found this unique cafe which offers quick grab-and-go food as well as plenty of table for dining either inside or... More

I ordered a salad (asian) and my colleague ordered the sandwich special (avocado and hummus). She said hers was good, but I was underwhelmed by the dressing which tasted more like plane soy sauce, and the extra-cost additional avocado was just a few small chunks. With so many other options, I don't think I'll rush back. I think the bakery... More

We stopped in as part of the Local Roots tour and had a grilled cheese with apples and minestrone soup. It was excellent. I would definitely recommend it. Tasty unique combinations.
