Closing in June

this place is great for happy hour, it goes from 3 till closure (midnight), half price appetizers and drinks. We love to stay at the bar, and in Summer in the terrace. Sitting in for lunch or dinner is not the greatest, though. Sadly they are closing in June, so the atmosphere is not as great as it... read more

We went for a quick lunch in between meetings, but it was not quick at all despite the relative small number of customers. The food was good and portions were large, but not super tasty or exciting.

On a chilly day the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup epitomized comfort food. Not to mention the excellent hot cider with a shot of fireball. Sooooo good

Stopped in because of their highly promoted happy hour prices Stopped in with my sons, daughter in law and three toddlers @ 5 pm Server was not knowledgable. Did not fill water or clear dishes Actually gave 2 year old children sharp metal picks for fondue. The food was average at best. Drinks were "half off" but very small pours.... More

My husband and I have been coming here for many years. Love the food, service is outstanding, latte's are WOOOO HOOOOO. My only pet peeve is that their menu has not changed in all these years. I wish they would step out of their "cereal box" so to speak and add new menu items. Other than that we'll be coming... More

They do have an all afternoon/evening "Happy Hour" (that lasts until closing)... but truthfully, I think their prices have gone up to account for the "half off" deal! Nice location on the Pearl Street mall for people watching, particularly if you sit outside. The food was bland and boring. If you want to sit and have a drink and people... More

This quaint cafe needs a little TLC, but the food was heart-warming on the chilly day on which I visited. The service was also extraordinary.

If you sit outside, you are right on the Pearl Street Mall and can view the passerbys and activity on the Mall. Often there are performers, mimes and music to enjoy.

On Pearl Street mall, we went for brunch and found this cafe. It's more treated towards lunch and dinner but they did have 5-6 egg Benedict dishes. I chose the crab and shrimp cake egg Benedict, with chipotle cheese sauce and roasted potatoes, OMG! It was fantastic, the sauce had a kick but not too much and the potatoes were... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The food was quite good, but, I'm sorry to say the service was pretty bad. We ate there a 2nd time because every other place was packed and the kids were hungry and we knew at least the food would be good. We hoped for better service but were disappointed again. Let me...
