Surprisingly fresh and inventive. The salads were wonderful. The decor is simple. It was a very pleasant surprise so we ate here twice. I think it is now called Kelly's Place.

Needed coffee after a happy morning at the VLA. Nice guy came out with menus and said he would make us a fresh pot of coffee. We ordered peach rhubarb pie and a smoothie called veggies in space. Coffee was great, and food was good....More
