Love this place, and its location in the artsy town of Berea. Don't expent to be waited on, you select your meal at the counter and then select and table to wait. Great food, can't beat the prices. Very casual.

I finally got to check out "the soul of Berea", as Mitchel Tolle characterized it, because it has all sorts of people represented: students, faculty, business people, tourists, crafts people etc.
I didn't feel like pizza that night, but I can definitely say that the garlic bread is to die for! The staff is fairly friendly and only gave us a couple of annoyed looks when we were being obnoxiously loud. So that's a lot of patience!
Trying their pizza is my next goal. Maybe it will even get a 5 then :)

My husband was very interested in eating at this restaurant after a day in Berea. We walked in, but weren't greeted by anyone. After standing around for a little bit, we went to go find ourselves a table. Food and waste was strewn on a number of tables, waited to be cleaned up. There was a mess all over their floor as well...not just in one area but in several areas. It looked like they were short on staff, with about two thirds of the tables full. We decided to eave for another place to eat.
