Don't go here. AWFUL! Very expensive and poor quality. They have been closed for SOME reason for two weeks. Hopefully not a health Dept. Issue!

While popping in and out of stores in the downtown area, we had lunch at this interesting eating place. Prices were very reasonable and luncheon options to choose from were ample. Everything in here is older, and gives the property a well used, comfortable setting....More

We went here because the Downtown claimed to have vegetarian /Vegan options. The day we went they had put meat in all their soups and salads. Ended up having a small pizza. Good basil pasta sauce but pizza crust very tough /hard. Nice service. Not...More
