Great atmosphere, a few tables to eat at. I got a few different things to take home for my family. Wonderful dessert bars. Family owned. Very nice owners. They have a great catering service as well. They delivered a ton of food! Good value.

Great place to eat good sandwiches and salads and other prepared food. Also love the takeout food. My husband stops there from work often to pick up our dinner. Love their variety.

This is a casual restaurant where you order your food and it's delivered to your table inside and outside tables. We both had a panini. My chicken one was good but thee rustica just didn't work. Seemed like too many dueling tastes. Regardless, we'll go...More
