“Great place for drinks, and I love their desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

My sister go there for "girls' night' when we want a good drink. We have had some entrees, too, and they were all very good. My favorite place to sit is at a table in the bar, but that area is small. My favorite dessert is the chocolate creme broulee. It's a very popular spot and would be a nice place to take a date.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

After we waited for an hour to be seated, I just knew the food would be fantastic but when I received my shrimp scampi it was just okay. The shrimp was breaded and tasty but based on the Grand Lux in Dallas it seemed this Cafe took a step back. My girlfriend had the Mahi Mahi and she thought it was just ok also. I did order the blueberry dessert that took 30 minutes to bake and was happy about that. It tasted great with the lemon topping.

“consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food and service were great like always. Expect to wait anytime you go there. Normally, its 10 minutes and up. Tons of options to eat. Be sure and order dessert!

Menu is very large, so you can find something to please everyone. I like their pizzas a lot. I enjoy coming to this place very much.

“Very good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We found this place by coincidence. The breakfast tasted very good. The service was very corteous and quick. The portions were enormous. Good quality food at a very nice location.
