What a quaint coffee/ luncheon cafe.
It is a small cafe that serves brunch/lunch options with a flavorful menu. Food is divine.
Coffee is delicious and served in large cups.
My cappuccino was delicious with a lot of froth....yum.
Parking is difficult but manageable..short walking if no spaces nearby.
Staff is friendly. Take out is an option.
Great space for quiet conversation, reading, studying etc but in off hours as it can become quite busy.
Definitely recommend giving it a try..you won't be disappointed!!

We saw this place when picking up donuts at the Montclair Bread Co. I just wanted coffee and thought it was that kind of cafe but it was clearly a sit-down restaurant so we had breakfast on a Sunday. It's VERY small and got busy later on but half the tables were empty when we got there around 9:30ish.

Servers were friendly and attentive. The menu was supplemented with great specials; we both chose specials. I had pumpkin pancakes with homemade whipped cream and real maple syrup and my partner has huevos rancheros. The food looked and tasted great, and the coffee was served in big 16 oz mugs, not the tiny useless mugs common at diners. The coffee was also high quality.

We left feeling very full and satisfied with our experience; we'll definitely try this place again! Entire meal was $27. Glad we found it.

I really love the breakfast at this spot. It’s cozy with outdoor seating. The farmer market is right down the street. In the weekend prepare for a wait. A lot of locals stop in and grab their coffee and breakfast to go because it is near the Walnut Street train station. It’s a solid local casual go-to with friends anytime in any attire restaurant. The Pesto Broccoli egg breakfast is great.

We return often and order the same things every time.

Kids love the salmon served with smashed cauliflower and potato puree. Hubby and I love the Shrimp and chorizo over white polenta cooked with coconut milk.

Save room for coffee and dessert!
