“Overpriced and Undistinguished”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This restaurant occupies a prime spot in a great location. They also boast a home made donut operation of many years standing. In all fairness, however, it's nothing to write home about. They have no a la carte menu to speak of. Their entrees are all very pricey. And the quality is just fair. I have had better donuts at Winchell's and Dunkin'. The coffee is decent, but the portions huge and the prices high. Save your money and eat at the Madrona Bar and Grlll.

“Local Recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We couldn't decide on where to eat, until a couple of locals came out of the restaurant exclaiming about what a great meal they had just eaten.

My husband had the open faced chili burger and he enjoyed his. I ordered the fish-n-chips and they were very good. We enjoyed every bite.

“Cafe prices, cafeteria food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Ordered the "special" grilled cheese sandwich. The tomatoes were green and inedible. The herbed mayo was too much and made the whole sandwich greasy. Felt sick to my stomach after eating there. Will skip it next time.
