Very good home cooking.Three or four specials each day and several good sides to choose from. We lunch here weekly; lots of people do. Best fruit tea anywhere!

This place is always busy but can be a hit or a miss! The day we went, my husband enjoyed his pot roast lunch. I ordered the 3 veg plate with cornbread cake!

Found this place on TripAdvisor while looking for things to see on campus. Even though it was near closing time the staff was remarkable! The food was amazing, and yes a sandwich can surprise you.

When I can't fix a home cooked meal for my family, this is the next best thing! Daily specials and plenty of veggies to choose from. My favs include the hot chicken salad, salmon patty with jalapeño cheese sauce and white bean chowder! Can't go wrong with a slice of cheesecake for dessert.
