Loved the atmosphere, prices, and food quality. Very friendly staff. Every meal we could eat when we're visiting, we eat here. (They don't serve dinner.) Delightful! Highly recommend.

Beautiful restaurant with huge windows to take in the scenic bluffs and all the birds at the bird feeder right outside the window. Nice touch to have a bird identifying book on the windowsill. We used it! Tasty wraps with uniques combinations...delicious.
