Tasty food, with the feel of quality, fresh ingredients. Soups and stews and the like, for both take out and sitting in. You could do a lot worse than stop in here for lunch, or to grab lunch and go.

Lovely food, lovely staff, great menu & all for a brilliant price. Great spot for lunch, esp the home made stew or seafood chowder (one of the best I've tasted!) Will be back!

Evrrything on the menu sounds so good. Was recommended veggie gumbo- no regrets. Reasonable pricing, really friendly and efficient staff and nice place to sit. Pretty busy but seemed to ve a good seat turnover rate. Do it.
