We come here all the time! The food is always fresh and hot! The chicken noodle soup is a favorite and if you sign up to be on the mailing list they will send you some good coupons!

All types of salads. A variety of soups to choose from along with freshly baked breads and muffins. Their cheese bread is like pizza. Really good. To end your meal there's ice cream with a few fixins.
