Great Tomato Soup, in addition to sandwiches

This small restaurant has a unique menu. The tomato soup with cheese croutons is one of my favorites. You can get soup with 1/2 sandwich or salad. The Gobbler is a great choice for a sandwich (turkey with cranberry sauce). I had the grilled chicken wrap with salsa, sour cream, lettuce and... read more

My meal was deliciously sui generis! Deep-fried honey coated chicken--tender, tasty, with a hint of one-alarm spiciness. Even the salad was 5 star. Warning: this restaurant is small and in high demand. Play it smart and reserve a table. Bring own wine. Dessert outstanding (coconut cake).

One of the best breakfasts in town...specials that need to be seen.....excellent home fries that are not greasy at all.......best hash hands down. This small but engaging restaurant is unique in their menu, the food is delicious and very appealing to the eye. The only drawback is the parking situation. Only a couple of spots in the front so just... More

This is about the service, since we did not stay to eat. We arrived and waited just inside the door. A waitress approached us and asked how many. We said "two for lunch", and she walked away without a word. There was one empty table that would seat up to 4 that was being cleaned off. We assumed that is... More

Met a group of 5 for Sunday breakfast. The place is very small and only takes reservations for large groups. We ended up in the back with the kitchen. Very close and I tripped/fell on the edge of the ramp. The food is good and they have created some really tasty dishes just watch where you walk

My husband and I drive by here a lot and finally stopped in for lunch. We were not disappointed. The locale is colorful and eclectic. We were seated fast as it was after the lunch rush times. We both had soup and a half sandwich. My bowl of corn chowder was delicious and thick. I had their "famous" chicken salad... More

Really good sandwiches with lots of choices of toppings and the best side dishes you can ask for. Their cookies are really good, too. Just tell them to hold the powdered sugar on the cookies - really not necessary and distracts from the otherwise really good cookies.
