This is not the type of place I would normally eat. However; the service was outstanding and the food was adequate. The Gyro was no better than at a mall food court, but I did enjoy the tabbouleh. My companions loved everything they ordered and...More

Thanks for the review. Perhaps next time you might want to try the Spinach Pie that comes with a side of the tabbouleh... and our Moussaka is another very popular Mediterranean item.

This joyful place offers a fantastic range of choices with great service. A place that cateres to taste and texture, they have quiche that is amazing. Grab a table outdoors in the summer and soak up the sun, or cozy up inside.More

We ate here on a cold rainy day, The food was excellent , however the waitress was rude and acted like we were in the way . Soups were good. Desserts were ok. Sandwiches were average. Nothing to write home about.

Really enjoyed this little restaurant - we each had a delicious pasta and fresh salad with house-made dressings. Such a nice change from the typical mid-western restaurant menu. And the lovely hand-made quilts all around the room made for a beautiful and comfortable space.
