We stopped here for lunch the week before Halloween. As we expected Salem was quite busy despite the heavy rain. We walked in and were welcomed warmly. It's got a quirky Salem vibe and is decorated accordingly. We were served quickly by a pleasent young...More

We went for breakfast and while it was busy, we were still seated right away. The food was amazing. It was so good. The wait staff was very friendly, even towards the extremely unpleasant guests at the table next to us.

My new favorite spot in Salem. Great breakfast. Decadent healthy and everything in between. Laid back atmosphere. It’s 8 in the morning and a bit early for beer (or is it?) but choice beer menu for our next visit.
