Humongous Salads

My partner and I had a late lunch here, for the first time, both of us getting 1/2 salad and 1/2 sandwiches. The black and blue salad, as well as the Asian chicken salad, altho 1/2 sized, were very large and tasty. Our sandwiches, one a Rueben, and one Fried green tomato BLT were also en pointe... read more

We stopped here during an afternoon of antique shopping in Dade. We enjoyed the tomato bisque and reuben sandwiches in a converted old car repair shop/dealership with both outdoor shady and indoor seating. Also loved the large pink lemonade! I'd go back again for sure!

There are few places in this area where you can get generous portions of excellent food for such a modest price. Nothing on the menu over $10. Now that's a bargain! Table service and atmosphere were both very good. All four of us had a different entree and expressed the same positive 'tasty choice'! Will go back again for sure.

The food is very tasty and well presented. One problem...they run out of Kumquat pie too often! This is a restaurant for dog-owners as they are allowed at tbe tables (the staff will even bring them bowls of water)! Great for pets and their owners...not so great for the rest ofus!

Had the Caprese BLT with cucumber salad, my cousin had the daily special, fresh turkey and swiss with potato salad. Excellent food and service.

Relaxing and Wonderful food... The seafood bisque is one of the best I have had... I have never had a bad item. If you get the opportunity to have a meal here I recommend you take the time and enjoy.. It is also Dog friendly

We stopped for a light lunch and chose outdoor seating. The tables and chairs are all different, perhaps adding a touch of whimsy. The staff was friendly, although the service was a bit slow. (They could clear dishes when customers are gone. Please bring my check first.) For soup, salads and sandwiches, there was little creativity. Food did seem fresh.... More

Lots of variety on the menu. Atmosphere is quaint. Food is great. Get it to go or just sit outside. Live Music on Fridays once a month is pretty nice surprise. Soups are really good too.

Just love how my dog is welcome whenever I visit, and the happy hours are great! Their food is fresh and ey have a nice selection. Sangria is wonderful! If you sit on the patio, remember the street is a main one with usual traffic sounds.

I've been here several times and the service has always been horrible...this through a couple different owners. The food isn't great but it isn't bad, either. The service is enough to keep me away. Their music series is lovely outside on the patio, though. That would be worth the time and money to eat while you're enjoying the music.
