Deserving winners of several rewards. The exceptionally tasty menu offerings will not disappoint. The lunch and early bird menus are keenly priced. Beautifully decorated. A must visit for the highest quality fresh local produce.

We both ordered sandwiches my husband ordered BLT and I ordered the spicy chicken but they both came out the same. We're nice though. Wasn't too many there which confused me on how they could get a simple order wrong.
