“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

We ate here for dinner on a Saturday night. It was around 5 PM, a bit early so it wasn't very busy. We had the hummus appetizer, it was excellent. Hummus made at the restaurant (we asked the waitress), served with pita, french bread, tomato wedges, feta cheese, greek olives and carrot sticks. It was excellent. I had a wrap (can't recall the name now) that had turkey, spinach and other veggies with horseradish sauce. It came with a salad or you could substitute soup for and extra $1 which I did. The lemon chicken soup is just broth and orzo but had a nice lemony flavor. The service was excellent, the server was friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. My only regret is that we live 3 hours from Carlisle! I would go back if we pass through this area.

“Great Find in Carlisle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2009

This is a great little lunch stop. They have a nice, varied menu - excellent soups, sandwiches and salads, as well as homemade deserts. Wonderful, friendly service in the heart of the quaint historic area of Carlisle. I have been here twice and enjoyed both times.
