Thanks again to TA reviewers. We were on a day trip to Traverse City and stopped here for a mid afternoon lunch. A party of 9 (including one toddler)...... Reasonably priced for the variety and fresh food.
Highlights-
1. A must have appetizer of the hummus with pita points.
2. The daily specials - from sandwich, to soups, to pasta = were all tried by our family. Two of us had the soup and it was an excellent homemade taste ( one was beef brisket stew, mine was tomato/asparagus/spinach).
3. Kids menu - a good variety and the server was attuned to serve his earlier than the other meals to reduce his wait.

An excellent experience, right in the middle of the Front St shopping area.

This restaurant is rated in the mid twenties for all restaurants by Trip Advisor, it belongs higher. We had the warm club sandwich,Veggie Tostadas, Sweet Potato fries with a wonderful avocado dip, and silk pie....yummy. We will be back.

This was a very good meal. Their salads and vegetarian dishes were creative, and one of us had fish (local) which was very good. The wait staff was very helpful. The meal did not come with bread, for example, but the waitress was glad to bring some very good rolls. The desserts looked very good, but we passed on those.

When I'm in TC I can depend on a nice lunch or glass of wine and appetizer here. They are used to crowds and don't make the customers feel rushed.

Recommended to us by a very nice lady who was in to their natural, local (maybe organic, I don't know) and unusual menu. All we can say is that the food is Excellent! I have tasted many Cobb salads but none ever such as theirs. The online menu doesn't accurately describe how the ingredients are combined but let me tell you- it is the lightest, healthiest and best Cobb salad that I've had.

Its a very nice change to the brew pubs in downtown TC. Service was much above normal.

It's a keeper for us when we return.
