On May 16th Esther's is celebrating both a late May Day and the first anniversary of their cafe. From 10 am to five pm there will be 'sausages on the grill' and the live music.
This was my first visit to the cafe. I was full, but wanted to check it out and just had coffee. They make a big deal about the roast. I though it was respectable, but nothing i'd buy a bag to bring home.
This is really a lovely cafe though. the front room is inviting, there's a little kid's play area set back so parents can keep an eye on the kiddies while enjoying coffee.
There's even a mini beer garden out back with three long, shaded picnic tables on a patio with flowers and a little fountain.
There haven't been many reports about Esther's since it opened. I'm familiar with the baked goods from farmers markets. How are breakfast and lunch items. From reading yelp, it seems the German pancake might be the best thing to order at breakfast.
