Had poached eggs with toast, egg whites with spinach and avocado. The food was good, the avocado was a little old and the toast was extra tough, but you might like that. Mint tea was good, French roast coffee was the best of the options....More

I love to stop and have coffee with my sister, or swing by to pick up an amazing loaf of bread. The food is amazing. There is nothing you could pick and go wrong.

I live a considerable distance away, so my visits are limited to Saturday or Sunday mornings. The brunch menu looks great, but as there's limited seating, I just pick up pastries to go. Unfortunately, the display of pastries leaves the baked goods open to the...More
