Sweet Sue's Review

French doors open into a bright, airy space filled with white wooden booths, marble-top café tables, and a stainless-steel counter where trays of fresh muffins cool. Folksy renditions of the house specialties decorate one wall; a blackboard announcing specials resides on another. Robert De Niro haunts this place, as do other area glitterati. You'll see why when you tuck into the Blue Monkey, a stack of blueberry-banana buttermilk pancakes. Pumpkin-crusted tofu over polenta and sautéed kale topped with roasted red-pepper sauce are served alongside hot meat loaf sandwiches and other comfort food. Efficient, friendly service caters to your needs. Take a note from the locals—who come armed with newspapers and books—and stay a while. Reservations are essential on weekends.

    over priced

    Slow service, we waited 20 minutes to get coffee and a menu, then never saw the server again, left money on the table and left, Tried again on another visit, since we adore this area, beautiful with lots of hiking, we had so so pancakes and a whopper of a bill- for breakfast! Don't understand what the hype is all about.
