This is strictly a no frills family kinda place. Bare bones decor. Attire is whatever you are wearing at the time from shorts and flip flops to jeans and a t-shirt. You'll also find kids running around unsupervised. Salad bar, soups,some pastas, pizza bread, corn bread, muffins, baked potatoes, desserts (ice cream, toppings, mousse, etc.) all cafeteria serve yourself style.... More

Loved it here! There is a huge salad bar, good selection of soup, a soft serve ice cream bar and even a baked bar with pizzas, muffins, cornbread, etc. Best of all, the price was reasonable. Will definitely go again when we are in the area.

We stopped by after shopping as we wanted a healthy lunch. You get a plate and tray and make your salad. They give you one of two types of cups, one for sodas and one for water. You can go back as many times as you like. The veggies were surprisingly fresh. Nothing brown. Nothing wilted. After you pay there... More

There is a very large selection of fresh salad ingredients and trimmings along with many dressing choices. There are at least 6 kinds of soup. There are different breads and a few pasta dishes as well as baked potatoes with trimmings. A few beverages to choose from and a small dessert area with soft serve with toppings, cookies, brownies, etc.... More

Like cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, butternut squash, celery, etc. The soups are usually wonderful. Cream of mushroom is among the great ones. The pizza and muffins are good. They have all sorts of desserts,... More

You cannot go wrong here. The salads are good and the array of soups are nice. On a cold day the soups will be hearty. They do have a chicken pot pi soup that was tasty. They even had biscuits that you could dip into the soup. I am not sure if they had a pumpkin puree soup during Halloween.... More
