The food is good and filling. The selection is good. The coffee shop in the same area is a plus. It is an older building with nice little visiting areas.

It's a very quaint place with a lot of deli type food mixed with a few home cooking menu items. Everything we ordered was great and reasonably priced. They have ice cream and homemade pies and such for dessert. There's even a coffee/espresso bar to...More
