Had to be in Detroit, also had to wait for an appointment, so lets go eat. Had the bean soup and chicken tenders wrap. Both were good. Not outstanding. Service was very good. Prompt but not fast, considering we ordered before the lunch crunch.

Ate here several times. Good breakfast and salad choices. Food is much better than your average diner and prices are reasonable.
