Lovely Little Place

Love this place. Food is made with love and staff is wonderful. It's small...but a gem. I especially love the tea...comes unsweetened and you just add as much sweet water as you desire...being from the South, let's just say it was pretty sweet!

Continues to be consistent and tasty. We had to wait for a take out order. The space is too small for the volume of business they do. They should move into the large, vacant sapc we next door and create an Italian kitchen shop in their present space.

This place is VERY popular. Expect a wait if you arrive after 12:00 for lunch. They have a variety of choices that are always fresh meals. You will not be disappointed. In addition, the service is very polite and fast.

I love thus funky little lunch spot. It's worth the wait if you arrive around noon. They have great soups. I love the salads, too. Fresh produce prepared and served well.

Food is great, cozy little place if you don't like small spaces you might not like it but the food is worth it. Try to avoid the lunch rush.

This place is awesome. Everything is great. I'd suggest takeout over dining in, simply because it can get very crowded and loud. If you do dine in, go as soon as they open or an hour & a half before closing. However, as far as the quality of the food, you can't beat it!

Perfect spot for a great, fresh lunch. Everything on the menu is good. I especially like the margharita pizza. Situated in downtown, it is a great spot to stop while strolling through town checking out the shops. The building is older and seating is tight and limited, but worth the wait. If too crowded, take-out is a terrific option as... More

Skip the fast-food & chain restaurants; go for something different and stop here! Hadn't been here for quite some time, so was thrilled when visiting my mother that she felt well enough and would like to go to Sweet Basil's for lunch. It's a popular place, so wasn't sure about a wait, but we got the last table for the... More
