“"Relaxing place"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We enjoyed a relaxing late afternoon lunch after a super long drive up from New York. They had an extensive beer menu which we all enjoyed. The food was great and the service was excellent. In fact my buddy and I hung around to have another cold one as the girls browsed around the shops.Nice place.

“I love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Crepes, savory and sweet, eclectic atmosphere and wifi...I could sit here half the day sipping coffee, nibbling on ham and mushroom crepe, sampling the apple pie...while reading, writing and deciding on a how to buy...in fact...I did...

“Great place to enjoy life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Well located , you have a small park just in front and a very nice terrasse ; the atmosphere inside and outside remind you that life is so beautiful ; service is of course excellent and the menu is well down ; the little dog on the logo makes you happy . you could play with games , enjoy free wifi and listen to music bands . A very exciting place to spend time and enjoy summer in Salem

“Salem restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

About a 5 min. walk from the Hawthorne Hotel, is this super quaint restaurant. Well, I don't know if you can say it's quaint (don't think anything in Salem is quaint)but it was a fun place with good food (not cheap, but also not crazy expensive) and good drink (again, not cheap). We LOVE Rasberry Beer, that was why we initially went there. We had our beer, food and sat by the window that looked into the outdoor "mall" area and people watched. A relaxing way to spend our 1st night in Salem.
