“Perfect lunch for a drive north”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We were passing by Huntsville over lunch, and wanted to have a more home-y meal than we would get from a chain restaurant. We definitely got what we were looking for - 3 bowls of excellent homemade soup, and 3 plates of great homemade pasta (particularly the penne arrabiata), for just over $40 with taxes.
Well worth it to go to downtown Huntsville, which is attractive on its own!

“A lucky find”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This little restaurant on Main Street, downtown Huntsville was recommended by one of the local merchants. We were just looking for a bowl of soup for lunch but we found a real gem in this place. Annie's mushroom, potato and carrot vegetarian soup was amazing and the gluten free pizza was delicious with our Pinot Grigio. The home made Tiramisu was a special treat. But perhaps the best thing was the warm and friendly welcome and genuine interest in all of their clients, whether they be visitors to the town or locals. The restaurant has just been featured in a book of great places to eat in Canada. Highly recommended.

“Yummy Food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We dropped by for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy but not full. We looked over the menu but ended up ordering completely off the specials board. Vegetable lentil soup and Italian sausage soup started the meal. Entrées of chicken piccata and lasagna followed. The chicken was delicious and the lasagna was top notch. We had no room for dessert. The service at the restaurant was also excellent.
