Very healthy and delicious food. The salmon is very moist and tender. I’ve eaten there at least 5 times and the salmon is always moist. You must also try the sweet potato cupcake. It’s divine! The food is outstanding. The place is kind of shabby...More

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Small place, but seating is available. Order at counter, pick up at window. Menu has a nice selection of organically prepared salads, chili, chicken, seafood and vegetarian selections. Apps and main dishes were nicely prepared and very tasty!...More

I I have tasted the zesty garlic and lemon shrimp, the sweet potato shrimp ( to die for), the roasted yams, the sautéed cabbage and kale- and all was really good. This is food you would get if you had a food snob friend who...More

First time today for lunch. The place is off the beaten track, small and unassuming, with no indoor dining, just a small covered outdoor dining area with maybe 8 small tables, and a few picnic tables out back. But most of their business is catering...More
