Went here during dinner hours to the wine bar area on advice of a friend. I ordered the mahi mahi, which was listed under their dinner menu and was $12. What I received was an appetizer sized plate of what looked like table scraps off of someone else's plate. Seriously. There were some little cubes of overcooked fish and a... More

Really! If I need to pay almost $10.00 for a sandwich, I would certainly like to have some contents between the bread! We all enjoyed our sandwiches but the lack of food was very disappointing!!

Vegetarian pannini had paper-thin sliced tomatoes, a little cheese, a smidgeon of olive tapenade. All for the bargin price of 8+ dollars. Delicious bread but nothing in-between. It doesn't need to be the Carnegie Deli but you should find something inside! Ice tea had no tea....so disappointed because previous reviews did not describe the lunch we had today.

This is a small cafee with some outdoor seating. It's just simply a quaint place to have a very good lunch. The salads are very fresh, pressed sandwiches are perfect...and the folks running the place are just plain nice...does not matter if you are a first timer or regular...same great treatment. So I do recommend for a nice, pleasant, good... More

We loved this place. The food is crafted with the care. The environment is frequented by locals. The art is beautiful. Try the macchiato and their Mediterranean omelette.

Nice little foo foo place, Good capachino and pastry goodies. Omelet was just OK, nothing special, although it did have a lot of feta cheese. A little pricey, but it's good for a morning snack.

I have been to Burns Court several times in the past year and have never been disappointed. In fact, the more I go, the more I discover that I love about it! The food in the Cafe side is incredible! My mouth starts watering when I even think of their spinach quiche - with red peppers and goat cheese! Magic... More

I love good quiche and specialty sandwiches. This place has those. The coffee is great also. Great place to stop into without having to deal with big crowds. I love to sit outside under the trees with my favorite furry friend. Service is good, menu is great, quality of the food fantastic. Sometimes I wish the serving was a little... More
