Had the chicken salad sandwich and side salad. Greens were fresh and the balsamic dressing was good. Chicken salad sandwich was good too.

The breakfast and lunches are all delicious. Prices are a bit high and you can not order what you want on your sandwich, no changes. That was disappointing. My favorite is the BLT.

Went here for breakfast with a friend. I got the mushroom and spinach 3-egg omelette. It came with toast and hash browns. The omelette was delicious and soft (not rubbery like some omelettes can be). I ordered my hash browns extra crispy, however they weren't cooked as crispy as I like them. The flavor was good though. My friend ordered... More

Meet friends here about once a month for lunch. Turkey wrap is excellent. Greek salad is also excellent. Service is top notch. Servers seem to know what you want without asking!

We told them we were under some time pressure and our servor Diane understood and was quick and efficient. We ordered the Cobb Salad and a Cheeseburger and without being asked Diane split the order for us so we... More

I learned about Curbside from a friend several years ago. I was so impressed with the food and service that it's on my husband and my regular out to lunch list. It's always busy with many folks bringing their dogs. They close at 2:00 pm for the day, so scurry over for great food and a welcoming atmosphere. You won't... More
