The cafe is a bit small but adds to the experience. The food is beyond 5 star. Make sure after you eat you get a pastry! Love this off the beaten path cafe.

This has been a favorite of our family since we moved here in 2001. Being a big eater I was hesitant at first because of the name figuring the portions would be small. Mistake!! Huge portions but more importantly the food is AMAZING!! Just be prepared to wait in line for up to 60 minutes. Hint, get there at either... More

It is a quaint little dinette known for its excellent lunch menu and fine pastries. This is a little hard to find so use your GPS. The diner is open from -11 AM to about 2:30 PM daily and usually has a line out the door by 10:30 AM. It is worth the wait and offers both breads and desserts... More

Excellent menu, anything you order is going to be great here. Try something new and order the Italian wedding cake! Come early for lunch if you want to get a table and not have to wait in the long line out the door! It gets busy very quickly and there's a reason why!! ;)

I went here for the first time and I quickly see why everyone I know gushes about this place. Do you have to get there early? You do. Is it really worth it? It is. I don't say that lightly- sooo many places to go, why wait to eat here, right? Because it's gonna make your belly happy. I don't... More

Amazing food. Tried their Panini and Bruschetta and cakes. It was one of the best I had. Also loved the lemonade while waiting at the queue.

Some work friends got me hooked on this place. My fave is the shrimp and artichoke bruschetta and the wedding cake. Their hot bread and dipping oil is amazing too. There may be a line, but it is always worth the wait.
