Ambience of this place is misleading. Walking in you get the impression of a "family restaurant"; metal chairs, wood edged formica topped tables, etc. But the food is outstanding and rises far above the initial visual impression. I hate to see the overworked word "gourmet" used these days, but for an informal cafe, this almost rises to the challenge.
We had a light supper. One of us had an entree salad; the other a cup of seafood gumbo and a plate of bow-tie pasta with sausage. Both were just excellent! I could go into detail, but the flavors and quality were all there and I will leave it at that.
From our table we could watch the owner-chef (he's got the credentials to be called chef!) hard at work in his small kitchen. Despite getting slammed with a larger than expected crowd for a Thursday evening, he and the lone waitress managed to stay ahead of the flow - so service was cheerful and attentive.
Prices were moderate and quality was excellent.
Makes me want to return for another experience.
