Hump-day at Tall Timber


Watching the sunrise this morning through Tall Timbers wide windows wasn’t a bad start to a miserable hump day. We’ve always had a soft spot for this gorgeous cafe, as it was one of the first places we discovered and ultimately fell in love with.

It must be the homey feel, friendly staff, and delicious meals whipped up by their talented chef that wheels us in and puts us into a dreamy cafe daze every time.

With their standard prices, glorious food and friendly staff, you can’t not give these guys a visit, they will make you feel relaxed and ready for whatever your day has planned.
