We had lunch at the Falling Rock Cafe and it was really good. Sandwiches are freshly made, the atmosphere is quiet and the service was good. Great place to eat when you want a break from fast food.

Really interesting setting in a bookstore. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and polite. Soup choice was remarkably creative and delicious. Food was tasty and nicely presented.
