Fodor's Review

For either breakfast or lunch this place has all the comforts of home—tasty café-style food, good coffee, and either a roaring log fire when it's cold, or balmy outdoor eating when it's not. There's a solid breakfast menu with all the usuals and a cabinet stuffed full of lunch or coffee treats like generously filled panini, quiches, bagels, croissants, and pastries. They also have a retail shelf with local wines, honey, oils, and preserves. There are occasional mixed reviews.

Clump of Hair

After a wonderful soak in the pools we hunted for some lunch after some hunting we cam across Springs Deli Café. We ordered $80 dollars of food. Not long into our first bites one of us noticed a hair sticking out of the food, mistakes happen so no biggies. The hair was pulled out to reveal an entire clump of sodden hair. Sickened we all could not eat a bite more. When presented with the offending clump the staff apologized but did not offer a refund.

After some pushing $20 was offered in refund of the $80 plus we spent. We were shocked and will never return and would advise you avoid this place at all costs. Don't be deceived by their pretty presentation
