Food was average and overpriced (My one-year-old's chicken fingers were better than my fancy no-mayo tuna sandwich), but the staff was very nice and helpful. They're famous for their frozen yogurt, which I thought was okay but nothing that amazing. As far as taste, maybe it was great 5 years ago when "froyo" wasn't the big trend again, but I wouldn't say it's any better than the stuff they have at a Menchie's. Portions, though, were huge! It's a shame they don't offer the same generous portions for their savory food.

The food is good - especially the frozen yogurt - but is let down by poor and unfriendly service. A smile from a hostess is not too much to ask for. There is a small kids menu and although my five-year old enjoyed her meal I wouldn't describe 40 carrots as child friendly. The idea is good, as is the design of the place, but it should be so much better.

Was difficult to get the waiters attention to order and even for the bill. Got a dirty glass of water on the table, disgusting. Overall quality of food was not at all good, except for the frozen yogurt, oly good thing there. Service overall was terrible, having to keep lookin for our waiter, for anything required. I wouldn't come back.

Food reasonable, delicious frozen yogurt. But the assistance from the receptionist was very rude. First I asked for a table for 7 people, we were in family, seemed an affront to her. After take us to a table in the middle of of tight two other tables, she took our coats and bags from one of the chairs and said we should put our stuff in the lap or on the floor ... even my little girl's backpack. If not for the nice waitress assistance, we would have gone to the restaurant. (Visited dec12, 2012 - 3:00pm)
