Have eaten here twice . Took home chicken salad today for lunch. Had a HUGE piece of carrot cake that a friend and I shared. Best cake I've had in a long time. Moist, 4 layers, lots of frosting and pecans. I took home a spinach/cheese Stromboli that I can hardly wait to eat. My husband and I will share... More

This little place puts out great food. Super sandwiches, deli style, great daily specials, salads and desserts. Everything is so fresh. It's really hard to decide. Fast, friendly service. Very clean.

I have been to GJ many times. I have never been disappointed. The lasagna and the chicken parmesan are delicious, oh and the fried ravioli too. Desserts are fabulous here, and I am a dessert snob because I used to own a custom couture cake bakery. No problems here.

I can't believe this place has been open for so long and I never knew about it. The wife and I stopped in for lunch. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan lunch and she ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo. I can't emphasize how fresh the food was. It was full of flavor and amazing. The server was nice and helpful along with... More

Fantastic fresh food gem! I make sure to stop by whenever I'm in town on business travel. Everything from beautiful salads, flavorful paninis, italian mains, and wide variety of tasty sweet treats. A truly nice break from generally fried fare in the surrounding area.

After dinner at the Dragonfly last night we stopped in Gelato Joes to let the kids get dessert. We had a cookies and cream, strawberry and chocolate gelato. Also tasted the blood orange and raspberry cheesecake. Everything was tasty. It was first time in the restaurant and having only thought they served gelato was surprised to find out they are...

My friend and I decided to give this out-of-the-way little restaurant a try for lunch - can honestly say this was one of our better decisions! The food was tasty, plentiful, beautifully presented, without that pretentious wait one often has to suffer. So good in fact I actually went back for a second visit.

Happened upon by chance - not on a main thoroughfare. Order at the counter deli-style. Everything fresh! Would like to have sampled one of each from the lunch menu. Maybe I will next time - and there will be a next time!
