“Good eating on Upper Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

This is just a review of the branch on Upper Hill, not the other branches which I have not visited.

Very good menu, including vegetarian items, reasonable prices. Crowded midday during the week (there are few options on Upper Hill), absolutely empty Sunday morning.
