I stopped in on my way to an Art Show at the park 2 weeks ago as there isn't much for food up in that area. The previous reviews seemed good so I went in with my 11 year old daughter. There were two women working and a couple eating at a tables. It literally took over 40 minutes to... More

We stopped by on a whim and found the staff to be incredibly accommodating and upbeat. They were attentive to the kids' requests and the food was very good.

We decided to give the place another try after visiting when we first moved to Woodstock; 4 years ago. No better and no different, except for higher prince point. Misleading breakfast menu items (not stating it was fake bacon, ham or sausage), overpriced up-charges resulted in an $8 breakfast sandwich made with the worst quality turkey substitute meat with a...

Nice quiet little cafe to meet with friends. Quick courteous service and the scones are the best! Go there often and love it.

We stopped here on our way home (they close at 2:00 p.m. during the summer) and were a little disappointed in the coffee. The hot mocha latte was too sweet and the flavored iced coffee didn't have much flavor...and the prices are high.

Carefully prepared food and flavorful. Great variety of really good breakfast and lunch choices. Just a bit pricey - but worth it. It was just what we were looking for. The vanilla Chai tea a bit too sweet. The western omelet chock full of ham, peppers and onions.
