Very Cozy, Ornate Restaurant. Personalized food selection. Food served hot, sometimes by the owner. Great place to go especially when its rainy outside, with all the tiny lights on inside. Make sure you make reservations, when they open at 5:00 pm tables fill up quickly....More

Fun, small cafe with a homey feeling. Food was awesome. Roast beef sandwich special is enough for 2. Be sure to try the wonderful clam chowder. Service was great.
