We went here for lunch and were on a time crunch. It took several mins to get seated and then we were told seat yourself at the back tables, thats all we got. The soda we received was expired and we didn't notice until my daughter had drank a bit of it. While they replaced it with a fresh one... More

After hearing many great reviews, we finally went for lunch on a busy Saturday afternoon. Although it was crowded, we were greeted right away and seated quickly. The service was really good and the food was outstanding. Every bite was delicious. We will definitely be back. Yummmmmm!!!

Who would have thought that you could have a culinary explosion eating soup? The butternut soup was over the top! The following week I tried the Tomato Basil soup with grilled cheese croutons......I could have consumed a quart! This is one of the best kept secrets around. Kudos for such a creative menu and very hard to make a choice.... More

This little gem has become so popular it is almost always a wait on weekends for breakfast - used to... More

This restaurant is more interesting than most. They change up the menu regularly and offer a small plate selection that works very well. It's a full meal for me. The soups are amazing. The last time we went they had 5 to choose from. It is also BYOB with the package store next door, it couldn't be easier. It's not... More

Not always open for dinner and the service is slow which is not a wait staff problem. Everything is delicious and made to order so kitchen is slow. Don't be in a hurry and try the peanut butter and jelly wings!

Everything we tried was excellent. Three of us had the fellafels, and offered high praise. I had the Cuban sandwich, and it was very tasty with all fresh ingredients. Our waitress was very cheerful and friendly and made us feel welcome, although it took her a long time to figure out that the shepherd's pie soup had run out. Great... More

This quaint restaurant is one you might overlook. A small restaurant with just a dozen tables, the food here is outstanding. There are fresh sandwiches, soup, burgers accompanied by cold sides such as cole slaw, pasta salad or regular fries, sweet potato fries or onion rings. I opted for the make you own sandwich choice and chose chicken salad wrap... More

Cute little place with very nice staff. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable but the food is just okay. The French toast is made with some kind of spice that just wasn't good. I was disappointed. I love good French toast and this was not one of the better versions. The bacon was good and crisp. The... More

Some of the food I've had here has been great, some breakfast eggs, a couple of the soups. And the sandwiches are hearty. Sometimes you get a clunker, probably well-intentioned; it seems like a small kitchen trying to get a lot of food out and still be reasonably innovative. I appreciate that.

Thank Bill K
