Food tastes good and at the right price.

A great lunch spot with a wide variety of relatively healthy foods on the menu. Everything always tastes good and the prices are reasonable. They also give you a choice of half or whole servings.

I usually get take out from here several times a month and they rarely disappoint! The hot ham and brie is the best, especially with a cup of potato soup! Try it, NOW!

When indecisive and in doubt, ask the waitstaff for a soup sampler. They'll bring a plate full of espresso cups filled with different soups. Don't be afraid to deviate from their menu to alter your soup, salad, sandwich combo. Nothing bad to point out. Only saw room for minor improvement: soup was a bit cold.

My soup was "gritty", sandwich was good. Friendly staff, nice and warm inside on a cold rainy day. If my soup wasn't so grainy I would have given 5 stars.

Everything from salads to soups to full meals and delicious desserts. Wine served in juice glasses, and water in preserving jars. Casual and at the same time food was served elegantly. Saltimbocca yummy. Coconut cake delicious. Wide range of vegetarian options, gluten free etc. Families, couples, singles all looked like they were enjoying this experience. Outside unassuming, color pink, great... More
