Great food but portions are small (probably right size but we are just used to American sized meals). Nice atmosphere but it can get pretty crowded in the new location.

The Caribbean Stuffed Sweet Potato was out of this world. The Three Sister's soup is great for people that want to eat out, and still eat healthy. Their latte left me craving more!
