Hungarian mushroom soup makes this breakfast and sandwiche joint worth a trip. My baked eggplant sandwich rocked. Lotsa locals here and a very cute wait staff. $7 to 8 for most sandwiches or burgers. Campy atmosphere near hippyville. Go, but be careful of the offerings...More

We like the uniqueness of the food selections and that it is walking distance from my cousin's house. Great desserts too!
