Good Lunch Spot

I had read several reviews on here that raved about the bread pudding. My mom is a huge fan so I decided to give this place a try. We lucked out that we hit a day when you got a free bread pudding with purchase of a sandwich and beverage. I had a cup of blue cheese soup with carrots... read more

Liked the healthy food with a twist. Super nice and accommodating employees, very attentive. Don't have kids menu but they were able to point out some kid options. I had an original soup with artichokes-delicious and a sandwich with some cabbage and ranch sauce. My husband's sandwich was also delicious.

We live in the area and count on this place for a great sandwich any time from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. The ingredients are fresh and tasty no matter what you have. I had a chef salad and my daughter enjoyed a great sandwich. The bread pudding with rum sauce is AMAZING! I always get a chocolate martini as... More

Stopped in for a glass of wine while my friends went to get the car to pick me up. I'm recovering from a broken foot and had walked as far as I could. I was the only one there for most of the fime and although I tried to engage my waitress in conversation she was cold and aloof.

We have referred a number of others and they too feel Embe has the very best bread pudding they have ever tasted. If you don't know what about bread pudding, just... More
