The title says it all...plus there is a truly wide-ranging menu in a place this small. We will henceforth stop at Central Perk whenever we pass thru Hamilton!

While traveling through Texas we stumbled upon a delicious little bistro. It is located in a wonderful old house complete with wrap around porch for outside dining. It is authentic including old wooden screen doors that slam when you walk in. The food was amazing. I had the tomato basil soup and a grilled chicken sandwich on a homemade bun.... More

Love the food, service, and atmosphere! My favorite thing here is the chicken salad. Just tried the key lime pie...to die for. Yummy!

We love stopping here when we travel on Highway 36. Great sandwiches and soups. Plus- all the food is named after characters on the TV show 'Friends'! Defiantly a treasure of a place to eat in the small town of Hamilton:).

Liked it. Small but eclectic menu of sandwiches and soups. Had veggie panini and chicken chimichanga. Both very good. Pies are homemade (waitress: "My mom makes them). Great alternative to chain food.

Quaint restaurant with hot panini sandwiches, wraps and cold sandwiches as well as half avocado stuffed with tuna, chicken salad or pimento cheese. They also serve a homemade soup du jour -- ours was enchilada soup and it was the perfect side. I would have given it 5 stars if they had a gluten free bread option. Similar bistros in... More

The stuffed avocado with chicken salad was unavailable at 1:45. They close at 2. We had a couple of sandwiches with salad. The salads were very well presented with very nice greens. The greens were too large and had to be cut. The sandwiches were very good. But the topper was the Mexican Key Lime Pie. We talked about it... More
