Nice place,friendly service people. The food is delicious and nicely presented. There's no bar, this is a church realted business, which is nice. It's family oriented and very clean. Happy to go there for any snack or meal.

Salads are always very creative and fresh. Sandwiches are also very good. Not tried the pizzas but they are very popular. Great for a quick lunch or very casual dinner.
