We were here two years ago while in Quincy for college football and found this place by accident searching for a good lunch place....gave a four star rating!!!! Excited to get to come back on another football trip to find they had expanded their site and their menu!!! The seasonal pumpkin soup was superb, turkey sandwich was perfect and the... More

Went there at 1:15 and we still waited 30 minutes for a table. The new location offers much more room. Delicious cauliflower soup pureed. It would have been nice to see a chuck of cauliflower . My husband ordered a craft beer. He asked the waitress if it had fruit since it said fresh squeezed. No, she said it was... More

We were in Quincy over the weekend for an annual girls trip. Last year we at ate at the cafe in their previous location. We ate lunch there on Saturday and it was quite crowded even though the size of this location is probably 3 x larger then the old. We had sandwiches and their bacon potato salad and we... More

What an amazing restaurant! Spectacular food, obviously someone who loves food owns and operates this! New location, simple, lovely, comfortable. I tried the country eggs Benedict and it was delicious! Fresh squeezed juice, a must have. Looking forward to going back (7 hour trip) to try dinner and drinks!

The owners did a fabulous makeover of the place. The bar is enormous and there is a cocktail menu. We had really good Bloody Mary's. It took a long time to get our food when it was very crowded, but the staff is working hard to smooth out logistics.

Food was good. I had salmon and my friend had traditional breakfast. All really good except the coffee was lukewarm and we had to ask for warmup or put in microwave. They didn't have a microwave. They finally made a new pot and it was hot, so don't know if the coffee machine had been turned off or what.

We got seated right away. The server was good and was able to tell us about the menu and answered all of our questions. Food was... More

I am from a very large city, so I have tried my fair share of burgers. I can confidently say that this burger was one of the best I have ever had! Also, the homemade Parmesan chips (get the sweet potato if they have them) were incredible and NOT greasy!

The food is always good, but I would not recommend carry out. I've had 2 separate carry out orders that were wrong within the past 2-3 months. It's aggravating to get back to work and have an incorrect food order. This last experience was particularly aggravating. When I ordered my medium-well classic cheeseburger with bacon, I was told it would... More
