Have been here a few times. Always come back as the food and service are very good. The warm salads are good in winter and summer. Service is good and I enjoy being able to watch the chefs in action. Going again tomorrow with some friends and very much looking forward to it.

Great food, coffee & service. We keep coming back to this wonderful restaurant that serves food all day. Lots of space for seating plus lots of little private nooks. Lots of variety with food. Great place to go.
