Lot of options here with a lot of fresh ingredients. They had some really creative salads and sandwiches. It was pretty crowded when we were there and it might be a wait for a table.

Interesting menu with varied salads and other items. Pancakes seem to be popular, but I opted for a sandwich/ The bread was very fresh as was the rest. Order at the counter and delivered to your table.
