Unusual space and menu. Half furniture store and half restaurant. Ate in and had a ground lamb topped flatbread which was tasty. Good for takeout too.

Located by designer outlet stores all made to resemble old structures, some are new construction. This is older construction. 1850c. We went for lunch. The number that can be seated actually quite small. Big tables for two people occupy a lot of space. Many would be patrons walked out. The day was wet dark gray August day. The restaurant quite...

This is the loveliest and most delightful place to eat. The food was delicious, and the chef graciously prepared one of his signature chicken dishes for me without chicken since I'm a vegetarian. The young staff is warm and helpful, and the chef will come out and greet you and ask how everything is. If you eat outside, it's dog... More

My wife had the brie over scrambled eggs with rosemary. I had the ham and "hash". This was by no means a traditional hash! It was by far the most unique and by far the best hash i have ever had. It had red onions, wilted spinach, baby potatoes, herbs, and a parmesan peppercorn sauce that enhanced rather than overpowered... More

We had lunch and the food was very good. It was a lovely, little place. The service is a bit slow, so don't go if you are in a hurry.

Food at this restaurant was superb. Everything is made in house and we were lucky enough to meet the owner who was charming and so very proud of his great restaurant. We opted to sit outside, however the chairs were not comfortable and there was some road noise but it did not detract from the excellent experience we had. I... More

The service and food were fantastic! The atmosphere was great! Love the fireplace, and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The serving sizes are filling, but you really want to save room for some desert.

Had a wonderful lunch outdoors on a beautiful afternoon in June. I had a great sandwich of pulled pork, and salad. My partner had a great looking, and tasting salad. Clean eating area, with friendly people all around. Our waitress was great, mentioning the daily specials. Very friendly staff!

Great creations from local ingredients. Really fantastic blending/s. I actually ate a vegetarian meal without missing my usual proteins. Staff is friendly and professional. If you are lucky enough to meet the owner/chef, you will understand where the creativity comes from.

4 of us stopped in for a quick drink and some baked goods. We were immediately seated in a lovely area and ordered. Drinks were fine and baked goods delicious. Now the hard part: At the bottom of the menu it states that an 18 percent service charge is automatically added to parties of 4 or more. That's all it... More

At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.
