This is just an inspired spot for terrific breakfasts and lunches. Locally owned and managed, and the vibe is great. Family, soccer moms, couples, friends. Just a treat.

Went to today for lunch and as always the food was great, but today the service was terrible. When leaving I asked the waitress for a cup of lemonade to go and when I received it there was a flying insect in the cup. I...More

Was expecting more. Walk in and order from counter, sit down with number and wait for your food. For the price of the food I prefer to sit down and order. Cheesy biscuits were not hot and very small. Bacon greasy and not drained. Large...More

I love that I can grab carryout so easily from here. The salad is fresh and full of Indiana corn cut fresh off the cobb! THE BEST salad in the city!

Taste has a wide array of yummy options for all types of customers, from soups & salads to sandwiches and more substantial fare. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Everything is delicious but don't miss the pomme frites!

I've been here twice with a friend. I can always find something healthy. Some of the combinations in sandwiches are not common, but creative and delicious. The desserts look amazing! The decor is lacking in warmth. Lots of different size tables, but a dreary feeling.

I used to love this restaurant and have gone more than a dozen times. I went last Saturday with my daughter and it was not good. From the decor, quality of the food and even worse service I can't recommend it. The seat covers were...More
