This is a cafeteria-style place, very informal, but the food has the creativity and quality that one associates with fine dining. The Brussel sprouts with anchovies are wonderful!

A clean looking place to clean your hungry soul. The dynamic lemonade store is a mix of farmers market with healthy eats, organic or veggie restaurant all together. When making the line, you may have difficulty making choices of what you want because everything looks...More
