Brought the family with grandkids. Had a wonderful dinning experience. I had the clam chowder bread bowl which everyone should have at least once in their life. All the meals were good and generous. Clean facilities and excellent service.

We had a biz lunch here in their museum section were you get a background on the bakery. The clam chowder and chicken were great as well as the potatoes. The appetizers - salmon on bread, risotto balls were quite good.
