“Day trip from Chicago”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We spent almost 4 hours at the Lincoln museum and had a recommendation of the restaurant. We wandered over to it late Saturday afternoon. I had the Bag lunch of BBQ Mac sandwich with pasta salad with Bre'ann cookie with water . The food was outstanding and should have only gotten the 1/2 sandwich so I got a box for the rest of the sandwich. My friend got Chatty Cathy sandwich which she enjoyed.The staff was friendly and helpful with menu choices. Even though it was past 3pm (we had no idea they were closing) we never felt rushed to eat and leave. The group in front of us got the Chicken pot pie and it looked really good. We would return if we ever are in Springfield.

“Yummy, yummy, yummy I GOT LOVE IN MY TUMMY!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is one of my very favorite restaurants, EVAH! The food is absolutely delicious and spot on every time. The service is unbelievably efficient and super duper incredible. Staff is so wonderful, even in the busiest of time! My faves are the oatmeal for breakfast and the chicken pot pie...peanut butter cookies are to die for. If you are in Springfield...JUST DO IT!

“Great place for Lunch downtown Springfield!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Two of us stopped by here for lunch Saturday afternoon between manning a booth at the Horse Fair and seeing the evenings events at the Fair Grounds. This restaurant was close to our Hotel an on our route so we decided to stop. Excellent choices of great, freshly prepared food and their soups were delicious. I love dining cafeteria style so I can mix n match my meal! Decor is stylish and I loved sitting up front in the storefront and people watching! We were very happy that we stopped here....go for a dessert - you won't be sorry!!!!
