Walked to Schmitz Old Deli next door to find it's either remodeling or permanently closed. Used TA for another place and this was next door. But, with a different name - Umbrella Cafe. Service quick, small menu selection. Really good sandwich and soup.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. The food is amazing, the portions are just right. The wait staff are attentive and friendly. The restaurant is located right around the corner from the convention center. Price is great too!

This was a great find for breakfast (they open from 6am to 6pm) but I couldn't go every day. It's a ONE-MAN operation and he cooks each order to order so you'll need 30-40 minutes for even an egg sandwich. I saw no meat on...More

Well, I can't really review the food since the owner booted out our party of five before we were even given a menu. His first call out from the back upon seeing us enter his cafe was that it would be at least 15 minutes...More

A quaint place to catch quick bite or multiple courses at reasonable prices near the city center, down the road from the convention center and the theater district… Food quality is wonderful that is close to taste of home cooking…
