The place to go when the local bars are too noisy. Food and prices are good. Wait staff take excellent care of their customers. Cuisine is mostly American.

I recently visited Cacao Lane for a weekday lunch with friends and my 11 month old daughter. The food wasn't bad, nothing spectacular, but not offensive. I had a rockfish sandwich on rosemary foccacia bread that was a tad stale, but the pickles I had...More
