This was a great find, just off Broadway and perfect for any meal or snack. The free wifi is a bonus but the food is great, everyone is so friendly and the tea is complimentary. Have their Mac & cheese!

Went in order lunch and told them what I want. They got order wrong first time and the second time. I just give up and took salad. It was terrible I could only eat chicken out of it. I did like the sweet tea. Will not eat there ever again!

Grabbed a quick meal there prior to attending the Grand Ole Opry. Couldn't be more convenient as it's next door to the Ryman, where the Opry is housed in the winter. Soups are always great. I had the tomato-basil and spouse had the chicken w/wild rice. Sandwiches are made fresh.

Great location in downtown. Food was good but they were out of a lot of things when we got there at 9:00 in the morning on a Thursday--no more cinnamon bagels, we got the last two whole grain flat breads for our breakfast sandwiches. Service was fast, not over-friendly though.
