For a friend's birthday, I ordered the two most popular cakes, a chocolate mousse and chocolate/raspberry. Both got rave reviews as being far more delicious than the usual overly-frosted and tasteless birthday cakes from other places. If you want larger cakes, order early since this is a small restaurant. The prices were similar to gourmet cakes elsewhere. .

We four friends visited on Sheep & Wool weekend, looking for an early dinner after a full day of tramping around the festival. What a lovely experience! Because it is small, the noise level was low and we were able to enjoy conversation without straining to hear each other. The service was welcoming and efficient, great wine list, and really fresh, well-prepared food. I had the gnocchi with pulled pork shoulder in a light broth, stated on the menu as a family recipe, which was really comfort food for grownups -- soooo good! It came with a light salad with homemade dressing and fresh string beans, to add some green balance to the meal. And the desserts are truly not to be missed -- beautiful patisserie offerings that are the perfect size and so fresh! Too many restaurants throw an over-large dessert at you that actually diminishes the pleasure of an after dinner treat. Word of caution: do make a reservation on busy weekends. People were turned away often during our meal. Enjoy!

Was in the need for a perfect date night and Calico did not disappoint. From the small intimate atmosphere that is perfect for a date night, to the appetizer and dinner that didn't see once ounce of left overs to the most amazing dessert. Calico was just what the doctor ordered for a romantic night out. Is by far my favorite place to go when I need some great food and great people.

We had a wonderful time and a great meal at this cozy spot. My wife found the place and I was unsure of what to expect. (However, I've learned to do as I'm told...) The food and the service was exceptional! We'd had a couple of mediocre meals in the area but this place absolutely turned all that around for us. We will DEFINITELY be back!
