    Harvest Breakfast - with Kale, zucchini-potato cake, cantaloupe slice, cinnamon apples, chicken apple sausage, scrambled eggs. Good stuff! (Not to mention the very fresh OJ)!

    Love the atmosphere, coffee, and variety of great scrambles (meat or veg) here. Great to eat outside when the sun is out. You can tell people love to hang out and eat here. Great meeting place.

    Easily the best pulled pork I've ever had. Their pulled pork sandwich isn't on the menu, but when it's offered as a daily special, try it!

    The ginger tea is delicious. Fresh ground ginger, lemon, and honey in a warm cup of heaven.

    Try the jump start if you are overwhelmed by the menu. Simple but good choice. Yummy eggs, bacon and French toast.
