Our first dinner at Meg's Cafe will cause us to return. This modest restaurant popular with Writer's Theater attendees has an interesting menu with excellently prepared food. We all started out with one of their soups of the day; the tomato bisque, lentil, and sweet...More

We love to visit Meg's for dinner before going to Writer's Theater. Park once and you can easily walk to the restaurant for dinner and then easily walk to the theater without moving your vehicle. Whatever you select for dinner is good and the service...More

Marvelous place for lunch. Menu has nice variety. Lemonade is the real deal. Portions were reasonable and tasty. Great place to stop before hitting Botanic Gardens.

My wife and I arrived for dinner before attending the nearby Writers Theater. The restaurant was very crowded and just about everything went wrong. I ordered chicken piccata and received something that didn't resemble what I expected. I tried eating it but found it terrible...More
