“Great local food”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place makes some of the best food in town. My favorite soup is their Santa Fe Chowder. Their cookies and brownies are out of this world. The macaronis are delicious, but usually too much for me to eat.

As a small operation, they do what they want, which I can respect. I believe their current hours are Wed - Sun 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. but you can always double check on their Facebook page. The post the menu daily. They sometimes close for random weeks to go on vacation.

They have a massive loyal customer base because the food is seriously good. Great place!!

The restaurant part seems to focus on just a few things done really well--mostly soups and interesting varieties of mac and cheese. We had one of each and were extremely pleased. The smaller portion of the mac is PLENTY and we would recommend ordering the larger serving of the soup if you are having it for a meal. There is a water cooler and cups if you don't want to spend more for a drink. The meals are not cheap, but the food is tasty and plentiful. We went at lunch and it was crowded. The decor is kitschy-vintage which we like. Food is served cafeteria style. The place is located in kind of a funky strip with some cool shops that you may want to visit before or after your meal.

“Best vegatarian food ever”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

My wife and I come here about twice a year. We travel the 50 miles drooling all the way. They have the best soups and mac & cheese around. They usually have about 4 different soups and 4 different mac &cheeses on the menu, We also love their cheese scones. It is a very small place and service is slow. Everything is made fresh every day and when it is gone thats it. Do not let the lines and slow service keep you away. It is worth the wait. Like I said, we travel 50 miles to eat here. We also usually get some of their cookies to go.
