When I first walked in I thought there were only "healthy, kale type food." However, the food was both healthy and there were options to be unhealthy, too. Wonderful food and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

No, I don't think they take reservations. But they do have free coffee and copies of the Post to help pass the time.
