Great Brunch Spot for a Relaxing Sunday Morning

Service can be spotty, with slow response. But the food, apricot tea and muffins help make up for it! My wife loves the Eggs Benedict, and I enjoy their omelets and different quiches.

It was ok, service was slow. The tomato soup was good and the salad was good, but I would not order the Tuscany Pannini again. It was tough ham and very salty. The potato salad was nothing to write home about either. Overall, it was average, but I won't go there again.

Fabulous food. I had the Pilgrams Soup - a cream of white and sweet potatoes with cranberries and pears. So good! I also had the curry chicken salad - very good too. Everyone raved about their meal. Many selctions at reasonable prices.

Loved the charm of this restaurant. Poppy seed muffins and apricot tea were absolutely delicious. The roasted red pepper soup was very tasty as was the smokehouse turkey sandwhich. My mother really enjoyed the champ panini and pasta salad. Service was somewhat slow. My main advice is to steer clear of the Tuscany panini. It was stack of thick, chewy... More

Anne and her people serve one the best lunches in town. Real Tea, real food. But those little muffins she serves with lunch are addictive! Staff very pleasant and attentive, service is usually quick, but can get a little backed up during the crazy lunch time. No big deal tho, it's worth an extra few minutes. The variety will meet...

Today may have been an "off day". We've had lunch here before and it was better. Service was terrible. We had to request the menus, more drinks, food came late. Food was ok.

You start with the Poppy seed muffins served for lunch to the inventive menu. A choice of daily specials include a soup, salad, quiche and sandwich as well as the regular menu. I had the quiche special and salad. My wife enjoyed the soup and sandwich special. Great food and service.

The food is always excellent unfortunately the specials are very often unavailable. The poppy seed muffins are to die for. Ann and her staff are always friendly and helpful. The sandwiches and soups are always fresh.

The Meeting Place is a very pleasant lunch spot with good food and friendly service. I eat there often and have never had a bad experience. It is a popular place, so it can be crowded at times, but the wait staff is attentive and efficient. It is one of the best places in town for a sandwich or salad.
