We were looking for someplace that was vegetarian friendly and this was perfect. Food was great & so was the service. My daughter the vegetarian had a waffle panini she said was wonderful & I had the mac & cheese with bacon, also wonderful.

I am going to start this by saying the food is good. The appetizers are very good. However, the service needs a HUGE improvement. They don’t write down your orders. They attempt to service your table by memory. The only part of my order that...More
