Unfortunately it's now closed for renovations (they said); we went there with my friend for coffee every weekend; several times we went there with kids for dinner (pizza and lasagna). They have free internet and you can refill your coffee cup for free. Love this place!

Gourmet does indeed describe what they serve, very nice attention to detail, love the food here. Try the Hawaiian pizza on multi-grain crust.

Visited this restaurant while in town at a conference. I agree with the previous reviewer that the tables don't get cleaned enough - there were only a handful of people in the restaurant but many tables had plates and cutlery left behind.

Excellent for a cozy soup, for breads and other baked goods. I especially like the Thai soup. The cheese danish is also wonderful - very fresh. Fresh, is a good word to describe the food. Its self-help, but you get a buzzer to call you when your order is ready. So you can sit and relax in front of the... More
