This cute little house (turned into restaurant) with TONS of fun memorabilia, has the best hummus in the world! I get their Tahini on my salad, as a dressing, since I am not a fan of the lemon dressing it typically comes with (most people love it, so try it if you love lemon). All of the Mediterranean stuff is... More

Called to make sure they were open and could take our party of 5 at 7PM. First phone call they answered, but said "hold on" put the phone down and then never returned to the phone. I called back, they answered and said yes, they could take us and asked for my name to reserve a table. So we showed... More

Stopped in for a dinner salad and were very happy with the Sesame Seed Salad with a small side of humus. Was just a relaxed pleasant atmosphere, seemed to be a landing spot for some regular locals but very welcoming to those who haven't been there before as well. Great place for couples or friends ... would definitely recommend.

I have been going here for years. There is something comforting how little it has changed. The food is consistently good. While you do wait, the food is hot and you can pass the time with a half and half app. The chicken pesto sandwich is great and anything eggplant. Salads are also fresh and delicious.

This could be a spectacular cafe. Unfortunately, it's not. The service is ho-hum and the food is just okay. We had lunch here and literally watched wait staff go across the street to to purchase our entrees. C'mon...

We were in the area and came across this restaurant and decided to give it a try - so glad we did. The inside is just so adorable with so much to look at. There is just stuff all over the restaurant from so many different years - also makes for some great conversation and some of the items throughout... More

My husband recently had lunch here with a friend so this Friday night, after a long absence, I suggested we go back for dinner. I used to eat here regularly, but for no special reason, had not been in many years. If you're not from the area and/or have never been, it's an old Victorian home hidden off a residential... More

Neat atmosphere with all sorts of miscellaneous stuff from all years spread around ... Makes it feel more like a home than a restaurant. There are many creative selections, which keep us coming back. While not a cheap eat, we always leave full and call it a good value. We ate this weekend around 6pm and had no trouble getting... More
