Small, cozy and excellent food!!! Highly recommended!!!! The food is delicious and menu is not the "run of the mill" that you find everywhere. So many different options, you won't be disappointed!!

I had "The Peacemaker." It was decent, not really my style. The atmosphere was fun, the employees were nice, and I will definitely return to try more food.

The Soup Spoon is way more than soup. Excellent menu with a local flavor - lots of interesting choices. Great for lunch or dinner.
