Hands down one of the best places to eat in Michigan City. The food is outstanding and individuals that work there are outstanding. All of the food is home-made and fresh. Can't recommend this place enough. It is a casual atmosphere with amazing food at great prices.

Stopped in for lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed a Caesar salad w chicken and my friend enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich. This is a little restaurant and it can get crowded.

What unusual and delightful choices. I had the Chorizo and black bean empanadas, and they were excellent! The special sandwich was a close second with andouille sausage and caramelized apples & onions. Wow! This is hands down awesomeness.
