Unique Restaurant

Combination book store, restaurant. A very eclectic place to have a meal. I had the turkey burger with apple slices on the side. Was very tasty and healthy!

What a gem!! Despite the issues getting in to the cafe due to main door being locked, the breakfasts are delicious! I could literally stay in this cafe all day due to the extensive library and variety of reads.

The only other Cappacino that rivals Paradiso's is the one I had while traveling the backroads of Italy and that is not an exaggeration. There's an art to this type of espresso drink: You have to get the steamed milk exactly right in proportion and consistency. Paradiso's barristers know this and are well trained to deliver it to me every... More

Good place to stop for a visit with friends. They have a good selection of healthy options for food but really enjoy their pizzas.

Maybe many restaurants aren't what they used to be. Revs used to have great food. Their wood fired pizza was signature. I used to love their homemade turkey burger. Now, both the turkey burger and veggie burger come right out of the freezer. The portions are smaller. The amount of chips are less. They don't include a pickle. I understand... More

Much like Jabba's Palace on Tatooine, this may be one of the crossroads of the universe. Hard to go here and not find someone to talk to, probably someone you knew in another quadrant. Food is great. Coffee is great. Books everywhere. What's not to like?

Sorry, this restaurant has just gotten poor, in my opinion. Pizzas are soggy, too much cheese, soup is delivered luke warm. Really? We ordered ahead of time online, then when we arrived at the time specified the pre-order line was closed, and 15 minutes later, we finally got our food which had been sitting on the counter getting cold. Come... More

A lovely place to relax with a cuppa. The wood fired pizza is worth the drive from wherever. I recommend the Revelations Supreme coupled with a Revelations salad with ginger soy dressing on the side so it doesn't swim in it.

This is a great place for lunch or just coffee. Plenty of seating and good wifi connection. Warm, pleasant atmosphere. Friendly service. Very good food, including sandwiches, pizza in a big wood-fired oven, and desserts. I always enjoy it.
