I live in Twain Harte & my friend and I eat brunch/lunch here whenever we can get together! We love all of their daily fresh menu items, coffee drinks and homemade goodies! Always something new & cre...ative on their daily menu. And they have vegan/vegetarian items, so for me it's perfection here in town! Highly recommend whether you're a local, visitor or just passing through Twain Harte! You won't be disappointed! See More

We would like to find a home for our cafe kitty, next week he /she will be neutered and had shots so will be already to go to a loving home, a little shy right now, but I am able to pet it a lot, let us know if you know of anyone wanting a cat, we would take it home but our Baby would not be happy!
