My husband & I decided to try this restaurant as I had received a coupon from Restaurant.com. I was looking forward to finding a nice locally owned cafe to treat my mom to a mother/daughter date. We ordered the spinach/artichoke dip as an appetizer. The flavor was good, but it had so much olive oil in it you could have poured it off the top. After a few bites, it was just too much & too oily. My husband ordered the meatball sandwich and I ordered the soup/sandwich combo. The meatball sandwich was not homemade - the meatballs tasted processed and were perfectly round. The lobster bisque tasted exactly like the lobster bisque we had just purchased from Costco - nothing Famous about that. I was offered the roasted red pepper soup which was much better. My turkey club was sub-par at best. It was served on basic wheat bread & looked like it had been put in a sandwich press -- nothing special, I could have made a better turkey club at home.
The outside seating is a nice quaint area, but unfortunately it sits just off the main road through Cottleville which has become quite a busy road so it was loud & unappealing.
Overall, my husband & I thought we would have been better off to make our own sandwiches & soup at home. I will not be bringing my mother to this cafe. We're better off at Panera, even though I like to support our locally owned restaurants.
