The food choices are basic, the food was bland and pedantic, and the service lacking. All in all, no need to go here unless you are have no... More

The chicken parmaesan sandwich was very good. Susan our waitress was great. Nice place to eat. Price was reasonable and the food was plentiful. We could have split a meal.

The smoked salmon Benedict and the lox bagel was OUTSTANDING!! The mimosas were fresh and unique, cheap only for $4. Currently undergoing renovation on the patio but... More
