“Another good one.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Retro decor puts you in the first half of the 20th century as you enjoy soups, sandwiches, and salads. The best occasion for going here is when you're in the mood for dessert; they lead with their ice cream, made in house.

“Ice cream martinis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Wow, this place was a lucky find. Close to the Fabulous Fox theater, with a cozy deco-diner feel, this place has some killer cocktails. We stopped in on a Sunday for a pre-show lunch, and got in and out in plenty of time. The white chili had a nice warmth, not overly spicy, and the gourmet grilled cheese with ham was savory and had just the right amount of crunchy toast-to-creamy cheese ratio. The star of the show was without a doubt, the ice cream martini. Our table had the pumpkin spice (seasonal). The regular cocktail menu also features some wonderful old-fashioned favorites like French 75s and Side Cars. The creative ice cream sundaes were killer and not to be missed. Overall, a fantastic meal in a fun atmosphere. Can't wait to go back and try the dinner menu.

Thanks for the rave review! We're so glad you were able to come in before your show at The Fox. Hope you make it in again for dinner (and more ice cream martinis!).

My 21 yr old daughter took me here, and it was a fun choice. Inventive, well done menu; don't miss the pickle soup.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Hmm, all of our food was very good. Service could have been a little better, but the food made up for it! Wanted to try an ice cream martini, but didn't want to wait.
