The Pizza was excellent Chicken Cub & Pepperoni & Cheese. Travis was our chef and Barista today. The Italian Soda’s were grand . The coffee by Creekside Coffee Roasting mixes nicely with Cypress Hills water.

Great soups and sandwiches. A little slow on making coffees, but the coffee and tea is fantastic. You can't beat the location. It's just lovely up here.
