I have never gotten anything here that I didn't like. The Cocky Leeky soup is my absolute favorite. The pastas are good, the sandwiches are yummy, and the fondue is fun and flavorful. Great for vegetarians, and the food is so fresh and healthy. The cheep appetizers that change all the time are an amazing value. Eat here!!

The restaurant was so accommodating, getting a table for our large family gathering and letting us make changes from the menu when needed. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fun.
