Dropped in, knew it was going to be pricey. Soup was yummy, service was fine, atmosphere lovely. Sandwich severed on stale bread with the tiniest side of apple sauce I’ve ever seen. Was hoping for a nice unique meal. Be warned, the walnut chicken salad...More

Stopped in for lunch and was greeted and seated promptly. The service was good, but the arrival of our food was on the slow side. We each had a different sandwich. Both were good, but nether the sandwich or the sides were worth returning for....More
