All in all overpriced eaterie trying to be chic. The food is not very good and was disappointing. I was looking forward to a nice dinner but was disappointed. They try to be inventive with there dishes but they fail. They need to stick to some basics that work and if they want to experiment on dishes, just serve them... More

The salads and dinner plates are very good here but the only drawback is where the restaurant is located. Parking, at times, can be a problem.

Wonderful restaurant with unique menu and nice atmosphere. Expensive but worth it for special occasion. It's a BYOB so bring a bottle of wine. Outside patio nice with good weather.

Fortunately we didn't mind sitting and waiting because one waitress was handling the lunch crowd on a Saturday. Ordered soup - miso with parsnip which was good. The quiche ($11) was supposed to be spinach, red onion, and red pepper but instead got a sausage quiche. : ( It was swapped out. Unfortunately the quiche had a very soggy crust.... More

We among many to have discovered this great but small restaurant, and we willingly drive the 40 minutes to get there. It's gluten free options are extensive.... More

We were a party of six for my father-in-law's birthday dinner. We arrived relatively early on a Thursday evening, and the person who was playing starting at 6 pm came over to the table and asked us what type of music we would like to hear. Turns out he didn't care for our choices...he was going to play what he... More

We stopped in for lunch since we were driving by at noon and it looked nice. The food was delicious. My husband had a dish with shrimp and chorizo over pasta and I had the daily quiche special. Both were tasty and the bill was under $30.00. The service was excellent as well. We will definitely go back.

This is a surprisingly delightful place, and even though it's in a strip mall, and tiny, you'll feel like you walked into a Manhatten cafe off of Fifth Avenue! It's just so delightful, the food is fabulous, the service is usually perfect (once in a while it's slow, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt) and... More
