I've been going here since it first opened. It's super cute and has fresh, local food. The food is slightly overpriced but I've never minded. The breads are also amazing. The last few times I've been here, however it's just had a really negative vibe....More

This coffee house/cafe is a great spot! It's worth the trip into the downtown area from the interstate -- only an extra five minutes of driving and it is soooo worth it. Expansive coffee drink menu, divine bakery (including gluten free offerings!), lovely salads, quiche,...More

Always a great place to pop into for scones and coffee after yoga class. The scones are always good and there is always other items and something on the menu for that day.

Lunch at Water House was quite disappointing. I was entertaining a friend from the Chicago area and wanted to treat her to lunch. We took a little stroll downtown and chose Water House. We were looking for a light lunch as it was about 1pm...More

There is something always new or different based on when you are there, they use local farmer produce and food is unique and fresh. They also serve a wine or beer which goes well with the fresh food. Delicious baked goods.
