In a maze of old Navi or Marine Barracks, organic food us served in a semi self-serviced canteen. You choose your menu at the entrance, and watch the chefs pick the ingredients for your meal' 4 out of 5, for the plates not being heated, and/or the meat being served demi-chaud.

Went there with coworkers for lunch and was delighted to get so much more than a salad. In the heart of historic liberty station the atmosphere is inviting and the staff is friendly.

What a mound of Butter Leaf lettuce on my plate! I ordered the Backyard Steak Salad. It was wonderful. Meat cooked to perfection. Very little carbs. Also ordered Cheese tray with 4 very different cheeses. Toast included with tray and dinner. Delicious stuff.

Enjoyed our dinners. I had the Thai octopus salad and my wife had the Cobb salad with tarragon dressing, both very good. Everything was extremely fresh and prepared in view.
