We eat here at least once a week. Everyone knows us, greets us warmly and gives us great service. Lots of locals eat here. Does a huge delivery and take out business. Favorite include homemade tomato basil soup and the Cuban sandwich.

After reading the reviews I was a bit surprised with place ... the service at breakfast was a tad slow ... the food was ok but was not very hot ... I'll give it another try
