The restaurant is decorated in a 50s theme with lots of movie posters and photos. The menu is full of comfort food with plenty of choices. The service is excellent!!

This café has a good location and charm. The service is good and the food is even better. A simple menu but everything on it that I have had is fresh and well made. Their brownies are outstanding.
