Visited after seeing on TA. Quirky quaint restaurant with lots of knick knacks for sale inside. Warm welcome & explanation of the menu. I had the beef stew which was so tender and sweet, my husband had the mixed grill. Service was excellent & the food good.

My boyfriend and I visited this place on Valentines week and were very impressed. We were looking for quirky little restaurants that were affordable and we were pleased to find this place.

I walked into The Habit because the waitress in the restaurant accross the way was unfriendly to me, so I just walked out. I'm glad that happened because I was welcomed with a smile and great food, and excellent service in The Habit. I highly recommend this restaurant - an awesome evening!
