We stopped for an early lunch after walking up and down Front Street downtown to see what was available. The large selection of soups posted in the window caught our attention. My husband had the crab & red pepper bisque with a reuben and I had chicken noodle with the chicken salad croissant. He enjoyed his sandwich more and I... More

Went here for lunch. Food and variety ok, nothing special. I think the food was not my issue so much as the environment. It overall left me with the impression of being a little dirty. There was a dishes station right next to the single bathroom, so you got to see all the nasty stuff pile up while you waited... More

We arrived at 1:00 and had immediate seating. My chef salad was plentiful (would have been satisfied with half) and hubby's club sandwich hit the spot for him. Service was good. The cherry vinaigrette dressing was unique and tasty!

Went for a late breakfast on our first day in Traverse. Service was good from the moment we walked in. We both had Eggs Benedict with fresh fruit. These were of ample proportion though we both felt that the Hollandaise Sauce was a little salty and appeared to lack lemon juice. We so much enjoyed our time there we are... More

We had a Grinder Sandwich and a Chicken Salad Sandwich along with soup. I thought the soup was only average....and they were out of one of their soups...it was only 12:30p My chicken salad sandwich was good and had extra flavor as they add dried cherries. My wife enjoyed the grinder. Our waitress, Chrissy was outstanding.

We went to traverse for a couple days and wanted to eat at some local restaurants. We stopped in and instantly had good service. I ordered a Ruben which was one of the better ones I've had. Waitress was amazing. Had refills there when only a quarter of the drink was left. Amazing job and HIGHLY recommend!

We had a great lunch here. I had a french dip sandwich. The meat and cheese were great, and it was on artisan bread. It also had portabella mushrooms. Yum! I had french onion soup which was also tasty. We would go back for sure. It's a small restaurant and it was busy and loud.

Can here to catch breakfast but missed it. Be advised they stop serving around 11am. Still got a cup of coffee which was unremarkable. My kid got a half club and cup of potato soup which she assured me was 5 star soup. To which I asked how could it be better? She said sour cream on the side instead... More
