Stopped for lunch. Waited awhile for our drinks to be served. I'm not sure if they were short handed, but it seemed like we were forgotten. The waitress came back shortly after we received our food and then never again until we were done. My husband and I would have liked another drink. Food was average. We both thought the food needed more flavor. I had a steak and cheese which was very chewy. My husband had the chicken sandwich. Decor was nice.

We travel a few times a year from Virginia to upstate New York to visit family and always try to stop somewhere local on the way. We found this place well rated by Trip Advisor and Yelp and decided to give it a try for lunch. Boy, are we glad we did!

I ordered the honey bush tea and the chicken chula masala and my husband got the Mexican hot chocolate and the Parmesan sage crusted chicken sandwich (side of homemade Mac and cheese). We also shared a salad and he got a cappuccino to go.

We can both say without a doubt that everything we ordered was fantastic! Flavorful, thoughtful menu, and made with love. Our waitress Elaine was also as nice as could be.

We certainly earmarking this place for our next trip!

Sent here by the desk clerk at our nearby hotel, we were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, service, variety and food. Having a late lunch, we selected options that did not include fries - delicious rice and greens, and Greek-style chicken with pasta. Great beer and wine selections and a more-than-knowledgable server with some excellent advice and suggestions. "Elizabeth" was quite impressive. We loved the decor - funky and eclectic which reminded us of our university days! What a delightful change from the chains. We will make it a point to go here again if we're in the area.

I was on a business trip staying at the hotal across the street and happened to stop in for dinner. What a pleasant suprise. The atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. They had a nice beer selection as well. I will definately be stopping by the next time I'm in town and may even go a little out of my way to get there.

Wife & I were in Binghamton for a family occasion and stayed in the hotel just across the road. We called in here for lunch on Saturday and were very impressed. The place was lively and welcoming, service was friendly and efficient and the food was really nice. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
