Very small, quaint place. All food is fresh and prepared to order. Quality is outstanding! Very friendly staff and you can chat with the owners who are also the cooks. Save room for dessert all homemade and excellent. Prices are reasonable.

If chain restaurants are your thing, this is not for you. Great food (awesome clam chowder and everything homemade), cool neighborhood setting and the owner could not have been more friendly and accommodating. I look forward to bringing my family back very soon!

We went out of our way to try this cafe and was looking forward to patronizing a non-chain food establishment. However, based on the service from the OWNER I am not sure how they are in business. She was rude, snotty, and outright disrespectful to...More
