Decent but pricey lunch spot

This was my first visit and it is a decent spot for lunch. Right when you walk in the door you get a view of mile high layered cakes they make, which were delicious. They had samples available when I was there so I got to try a few varieties. For lunch, you order and pay at the register, take... read more

We had a delicious take out experience at this little treasure of an informal restaurant. if you are looking for lots of romantic ambiance or formal suuroundings, this is not the place for you. If, however, you are just after a great meal, this one is worth your time and appetite. The only downside are the prices which are on... More

We went here because it was convenient to where we were staying. First thought was that the decor is very utilitarian - more hospital cafeteria than family restaurant - tiled floor, bare walls, institutional ceiling. Oddly, given that first impression, the table beside us had several bescrubbed doctor-type men at it! Started off with some nice warm bread and butter.... More

Great food. We were visiting from the Charlotte area for birthday trip for my teen daughter. Food was incredible. Best hamburger I have ever had. My kids had Macaroni and cheese (homemade) and Ravioli's which were good. Tuesday night (which it happened to be) has free cake with $10 entrée. We had a chocolate strawberry cake and vanilla blueberry cake... More

We eat here about every other month when we travel to Chapel Hill. We eat as a group with others and the restaurant has always made special accommodations for us. The food is quite good with a wide variety.

When traveling for work, I often find myself searching for something off the beaten path for food options. There is only so much you can do with chain places. Nantucket has a great and varied dinner menu, and the ability to purchase whole cakes from the bakery (which I had to do!)

Needing a work night dinner and being tired we dashed in here to eat on a lovely evening last week. Getting past the baked goods case took stamina and endurance! We were seated outside on the parking lot side patio with two other tables. Service was fair (Salt please....Salt...OK I can see it inside on a table I can go... More
