The food was delicious and the portions large. A unique place a short walk/drive out of the way of downtown Carmel next to Monon Trail. Cute old house turned into cafe. Loved it and plan to go back!

Guys from our church group met here this Saturday morning. I ended up with a breakfast bowl with bacon. We sat on patio overlooking the Monon trail. I would have liked to have tried the homemade donuts!

I enjoyed my egg white omelet and the other three in our party enjoyed their breakfast as well. The outside porch area is very pleasant.
