“Always a delight”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

The food is consistently wonderful. What a fantastic restaraunt. The staff- Sam, Alex, John, Chelsea make it a joy to come in.Hard to choose a favorite but if I have to choose, mine would be the lemon orzo soup or the pork roast and ny husbands's would be the Italian sausage hoagie or the Cortez burger. We visit almost every day and feel like we are family. WONDERFUL!

5 Stars!! Woo Hoo! Thank You! We love when people happen by and find us, then became part of our restaurant family. I love the lemon orzo soup too, its a taste of home for Sam, his Mom's recipe. All of our servers love to see their names in print so you have made our day.

“Best Breakfast”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Hands down, the best breakfast in the whole area! Great service and the prices are right. If you have to wait a bit for a table, do it. Absolutely worth it! Their lunch menu is really good too. Expecially their chef's salad and club sandwiches.

“Good reputation, but”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Reported to be a good lunch venue, but the day we visited they must have had a substitute chef! Sandwiches came with missing ingredients, different breads than listed and generally in a confused form compared to the menu descriptions. We might try again, but not high on our agenda.
