It is a quaint little dinette known for its excellent lunch menu and fine pastries. This is a little hard to find so use your GPS. The diner is open from -11 AM to about 2:30 PM daily and usually has a line out the door by 10:30 AM. It is worth the wait and offers both breads and desserts... More

Excellent menu, anything you order is going to be great here. Try something new and order the Italian wedding cake! Come early for lunch if you want to get a table and not have to wait in the long line out the door! It gets busy very quickly and there's a reason why!! ;)

I went here for the first time and I quickly see why everyone I know gushes about this place. Do you have to get there early? You do. Is it really worth it? It is. I don't say that lightly- sooo many places to go, why wait to eat here, right? Because it's gonna make your belly happy. I don't... More

Some work friends got me hooked on this place. My fave is the shrimp and artichoke bruschetta and the wedding cake. Their hot bread and dipping oil is amazing too. There may be a line, but it is always worth the wait.

Be prepared to wait in line. My husband hates to wait in line however I assured him it would be worth it and it was! The food is plentiful and excellent! My husband was in love the minute they brought fresh bread to the table with olive oil. Every menu is so fresh! And since your dessert (if you ordered... More

Crazy one hour wait but it's always worth it to me. Especially if you con somebody else into waiting in line for you and you show up just in time to be seated. (Thanks, honey). I had the roast beef and cheddar this time, and it was outstanding. My mother-in-law had the bruchetta and my wife had the bang bang... More
