Welcome to The Getaway Café
I have always dreamed of owning a restaurant where my friends and family would feel at home and where strangers would soon become friends. I have been in the restaurant industry since I was 14 years old and have been influenced by many wonderful chefs preparing a wide array of foods from many cultures. My happiest moments have always been when I was cooking for my friends and family. My mission is simple: great food prepared with fresh ingredients at an affordable price.
May your meal be enhanced by the friendly banter of an attentive staff. Everything is made fresh to order in a very small kitchen so sit back, relax and enjoy the conversations of the guests you are dining with. I promise you it will be worth the wait.
If there are items on my menu you have never tried before, I encourage you to be adventurous. You will find a blend of American, Italian and Mexican cuisines on the menu, sometimes with a unique twist, but always prepared with a passion for flavor.

people love our food
see what they say
This place, I loved. It was the perfect way to end an awesome weekend. Parking was easy, indoor seating was limited but there were lots of outdoor/dog friendly tables outside if it weren't so chilly. Our party of 7 waited to be seated and one funny sign reminded people to put their phones away and talk to each other 🙂 I had the veggie benedict and special s'mores crepe. Let's just say, every single bite was too delicious to document in a picture lol. The service was really showing off they can certainly handle a busy Sunday morning!
Our service was horrible. I don't think we got even 1 refill of coffee. Our server served everyone around us. Never asked if we needed anything after serving us the food. We still tipped good even though she deserved nothing. I had the chilaquiles and they we're good. My husband had the eggs Benedict and he said it was undercooked. We order the coconut French toast and it smelled like Plato and had no flavor. Didn't even eat it. The store is small so we could barely get our baby in there in his stroller, but of course we made it work. Really disappointing when you spend that much money. They say they are voted best but I don't see how. Maybe a long time ago or at once they we're.
