We ate at the Sage Cafe several weeks ago and enjoyed everything. However today we went back and my experience was not as good. I checked my flatware bundled in a napkin and first noticed the fork handle had encrusted food on it. Upon further inspection, the blade of the knife also did. Hmmm. It was cheerfully exchanged and we ordered our food. I know they close at 3PM and we arrived at around 2PM but the biscuits were hard and dry. OK, maybe we came too late for fresh biscuits. I ordered an omelette and encountered a piece of plastic in my omelette. They said it came from the cheese package after I pointed it out to them and perhaps that is so. They apologized and I said it was ok. What was I going to do? If I were a manager or owner, I would have done something, ...anything ...like a discount at a future meal for this to happen. I received nothing. Oh well. I felt a little nauseous for awhile afterwards but I am fine now. But, I just think the experience of our lunch was ruined. Accidents happen and it was not the end of the world. Bad luck I suppose. Service was great otherwise. I just wanted to share this.

This place is set in the most unlikely of places and has the ambience of a place that feels like you want to write a song or create a poem. Seriously, the food is all tenderly prepared by Carmen, the hostess is his gracious and lovely wife, and the waiters are "familia" in the sense that they know what to tell you and will go ask questions if you have any that they cannot answer. We genuinely enjoy the feeling that we are welcome and remembered. The food is excellent, the wine selections within reason, and the desserts and coffee are great! You can be in a pizza mood or a fine dining mood and this inviting place will accomodate you. Dress is casual and folks come back and keep coming back. Sometimes you want to dress up and sometimes you don't. You are welcome here in a way that makes you feel special in a time in our lives and our economy that doesn't treat you so well. Need to feel safe, secure, well fed and happy? Drop in. We do whenever we can. Kaysie McAlister
I have dined at Carmens about 7 or 8 times always got a excellent meal, several nights ago i took friends there for a special night out. We were told the specials,maybe it was our fault we did not ask the price, but should of been told when waitress was telling us what they were. First one entree sauce tasted burnt, which surprised me it was always great when I got it, second pasta with a little lobster in it should not of cost $45.00,,( one of the specials). Only 2 out of the 6 of us were ok with our meal. i was very disappointed, but I will try it again,seeing it might of been an off night, to bad it had to be on a night I brought guest< but it won,t be a $230.00 night again.
