This German Colony institution is as well-known for its famed Oreganatto salad (made with sweet potatoes) as it is for the sweet potato pancakes and salmon burgers. One of the few local cafés serving a Friday morning breakfast buffet—although you may want to order the usual eggs, cheeses, and salad—it's a warm, welcoming place with a personable staff. It's a favorite spot for locals, both for the excellent coffee and the full meals. The Botanical Gardens branch has the same menu, but a different view: lily pads, flittering birds, and lots of flowers.
