Always enjoy eating here. There is a very large choice of menus for everyone. The food is excellent and the portion sizes are very good as well as cooked freshly. My husband and I had caesar salads which was very plentiful. I ended up asking for a doggie bag which I later enjoyed. Love coming here with friends and family.

Enjoyed a very nice lunch at this cafe. The menu is very varied, so there is a lot to choose from. Lots of paninis with salad. Very tasty menus. Enjoyed our lunch which was very reasonable in price.
