Eclectic place for delicious food. The avocado toast was delicious. The green chili cakes were excellent. Onion, cilantro and tomatoes complimented the pancakes to perfection. Definitely would recommend.

I can't decide which I love more: the look or the food of this shop/restaurant. Totally pleasing to the eye and senses--white and simple--with exquisitely chosen garden tools, kitchen supplies, books, baskets, and edible treats.
