We went there for a sit down waited meal, it was more a deli type place. The food was prepared early in the day in a case they warm it up and you bring it to the table yourself. If I wanted warmed up food I would stay home and have leftovers. I don't know how you warm up food... More

A wonderful lunch place with great and plentiful salads and sandwiches. Service is fast and friendly. As much a deli as a restaurant.

We picked up sandwiches to eat on the road home as we thought this would be so much enjoyable than eating at some fast food place. And we were right it was wonderful to have such fresh sandwiches. Loved the orange slice and coleslaw.

Top quality chef owns this small quaint cafe. The food is top notch as are the desserts. She also has items in the refrigerator case prepared to take home for dinner. A little pricey, but worth it!

Different menu items, which is something I enjoy more than my husband! Interesting dishes to choose from but a little higher priced than what we expected. Still, not too bad.

Very unique, healthy, fresh lunch. Wide variety on salads and vegetables; some with meat and others vegan. Great soups and large portions. We went their with friends who live there. They eat there a couple times a month.
