Something Different is Always Worth It

Looking for something different and found this little gem. 100 year load drug store building turned restaurant. So many unique things including the menu. Highly recommend this place. Highly recommend the Asian Pork Sandwich for lunch!

I took my 95-year-old mother out for lunch and wish we had been able to have lunch. We ordered cups of the soup which came out and we enjoyed. We also ordered a chicken salad sandwich and a turkey and brie sandwich. We waited for over an hour and when our server brought our lunch it was not what we... More

I did go with a friend and a Groupon for a fixed menu meal. Thought food, service and atmosphere was delightful. It boarders on expensive, but won't burst your budget. Music on weekend, a patio and palmist during the week!

We just dined at this restaurant and were reminded once more why we love this place so much. The food was delicious (as always). The service by Chris was truly top-notch. He is the best...so friendly and helpful. The smoked salmon is always a winner for me. My husband got his favorite ...the spanakopita. The crust was light and flaky... More

Went here with a group of 15, age 60+. Terry accommodated us in the separate bar area. It was perfect. The menu had something for everyone, our salad ladies, our sandwich folks and the dinner lovers. Everyone was satisfied. The food and drinks were both good.

Arranged a Mother's Day surprise get together there between 3 families and everything was perfect. Most importantly, the brunch was delicious, the restaurant is very interesting and everything was wonderful!!! The staff was super helpful in keeping/arranging the surprise too. If you have to stop reading here...just know that it gets my highest rating for food, quirky décor and great... More

We were a party of 5, sat on the patio and had Chris as our server. Everything from the drinks to the dessert and the food in-between was amazing! Well prepared, fresh and beautifully presented. The restaurant itself is something to behold - make sure you go upstairs and check out the big band.....fabulous!

First time there, and so glad we went. We had snapper and stuffed poblonos (stuffed pepper) - both were amazing. The fish was very fresh. YSC is in a beautiful old building. It was a perfect spring evening so we were out on the paver patio, which was gorgeous. There was a "big band" playing on the 3rd floor in... More

My wife and I had another good dinner at York Street Cafe. This place has a quirky but nice atmosphere, an unusual menu, and good casual service. The prices are moderate so it is always a good value. Some days they offer wine specials that are a special value.

The burger was really good and the scenery was nice. Good soup and salad. Very eclectic place with lots of old time knick knacks. Reminded us of grandmas house!
