The salads are good and fresh, but it's a pretty expensive place for what you get. There isn't a lot of variety and it's a little weird the way the seating is set up mostly bench style - not great for small groups. The non-alcoholic drink selection is meager, as they don't have plain iced tea or regular sodas.

My husband and I were treated to a gift here. We really enjoyed the staff, manager and of course the food and spirits. I don't drink wine anymore but still was able to fully enjoy this establishment. Recommended!

I always enjoy eating here. The meal is always fast without a fast food experience. It's prepared fresh and is always delish!

I ordered the Northstar burger with fries. The burger was good but it was fried and crispy so I would recommend a lighter side with it. The fries were also good and I really enjoyed the beer. I ordered Jackie O's Ricky, a light draft beer. You order up front then they bring the food to the table.

Great food but not on a budget. Definitely worth it for this fresh healthy food. Vegetarian options available, lots of variety, and even some selection of adult beverages. Highly recommended for casual dining in Easton area, but parking can be difficult if Barnes and Noble lot is full. Carryout is quick and easy, and never inaccurate.

Another visit yesterday. The Beechwold salad is amazing. My mother had the Heirloom tomato salad with panzella. I can't say enough about the atmosphere, quality of food, creativity, best coffee and teas, and pleasant and efficient service.

This place continues to amaze me. It's always perfect! Only hard part is finding a table some days! Love their salads and pizza flat breads. Parking is sometimes tricky. for Easton location only. Great creme soda and homemade ginger-ale!

Love this place for their fantastic menu, you couldn't find something you won't like. The food will get you in the door, fun atmosphere will have you stay awhile...but the part that will make your experience (and bring you back) are the staff. I seriously think you have to sign up to receive dopamine injectables to work there. I've never... More
