My friend and I happened upon this place quite by accident. We just wanted something to drink or perhaps a snack. The woman was so friendly and proudly proclaimed they have the best coffee (and it's organic!) around! Everything is gluten free. We both chose the Rio Affogato and though it is different than the gelato/espresso that usually makes an... More

I have driven past this place several times (each time they were closed though), and have said to myself "I have to try this place out!" I finally did yesterday morning. Not wanting to make breakfast at home, drove down and figured I would just order the ham and cheese waffles. This waffle is so tasty and full of flavor!... More

We stopped in on Saturday during our morning walk for brunch and were pleasantly surprised. The menu has interesting and creative selections, the coffee is good, prices are quite reasonable and the service is very friendly! The reasons I didn't give five stars are that the food was not very hot when it arrived and the place is so tiny... More

This is a very celiac friendly place to eat! There is a great variety of absolutely delicious food. The staff was very welcoming and friendly! You can clearly see that they like what they are doing, cheerful atmosphere. We would definitively come back again.

This is a friendly neighbor hood cafe/coffee shop. They have outdoor seating and, surprise, they cater to the gluten intolerant. I recommend their breakfast selections. They have waffles, french toast and pancakes. They also have coconut ice cream. They offer a large variety of smoothies. The owners are a very friendly couple and I have know them since they had...

This is a gem of a cafe. The food is creative, extremely tasty and reasonably priced. I had the best ham and cheese sandwich I have ever eaten. They serve delicious organic coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Besides sandwiches, you can also get waffles which are as creative as the sandwiches.

This little gem might be a little hard to find. It's on a main street. The sign has been removed by landlord. The food is freshly cooked. The proprietors are very friendly and from Venezuela. I had the Waffles w apples and agave sauce and it was huge and very delicious. I can't say enough good things about my meal.... More
