I have eaten at this place many times. The food is delicious and unique. The food choices are usually sandwiches, salads, and soups. They also offer wonderful ice cream treats...with and without liquor. It is a mid-sized place which makes it a nice, friendly atmosphere....More

I apologize for answering your question so late. I just noticed it. I believe that the restaurant is handicap accessible. I am not sure the rest room is handicap accessible. I hope this helps.
