Just had the WORST Reuben sandwich ever! Sauerkraut soaked BREAD with little corned beef. French fries were OK but not what they used to have. Sweet, accommodating waitress. I hear there are new owners. They need to get with the program!

Perfect for breakfast, wonderful staff and bright airy space. Save room for the deserts all home made, and its just a fun place.
