I walked here and enjoyed both the menu and the drink. You'd never expect a place of this quality to be in a mall.

Came here after visiting Leanin Tree Museum( a must go). Just a few minutes from there. In a little strip mall. Food was wonderful. Quesadilla with a fabulous salsa verde sauce and a corn chowder to die for too. Wrap was great too. Fast friendly service. $9-$15 average. Will most definitely go back. A little jewel.

It seemed a bit expensive for a lunch looking at the menu, but the mushroom ravioli was really really good, and the plate was such that I could not finish it, and asked to have the remainder boxed up. And therein lies the story. I was half way home, thinking about how I already had my dinner, when I realized... More

After touring Celestial Seasonings we were looking for some place close for lunch. Saw this on Trip advisor and the menu had some good choices for a non-meat eater. Seems kind of out of the way but near a lot of businesses and was really good. I've been having trouble finding decent options on this trip so was very happy... More

Had high expectation for "The Veggie" sandwich...grilled portabella, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, cheese, pesto, field greens on a sesame bun. In my mind I envisioned a full portabella - there were a few slices. I envisioned all the veggies piled on the bun - there were two slice of white onion a large piece of romaine on the side. I...

Cute little place in shopping Plaza. We had French Onion soup and Corn Fried Calamari to start for lunch. Portions were good and fresh tasting. Calamari was not overcooked and enjoyable. Loved the Lunch Gnocchi because it had a combination of sweet potato and potato in a creamy Pesto sauce with added chicken. Portion size was enough for 2 people.... More

This place was excellent. We just happened to look up what was near us for lunch and this popped up. I enjoyed the best chicken quesadilla I've ever had with a hot green chili sauce and great sour cream mixture to dip it in. My hubby had a superb Ruben sandwich. I would say this is the place for a... More

Found this cafe off Trip Advisor. My wife and I stopped in for lunch. Not the place to go if you are in a hurry it took 20 plus minutes to get our food. It was, however, worth the wait. I had a Reuben sandwich that was the best I have ever had. My wife had the same response regarding... More

Came in around 6pm and the restaurant was already getting crowded. Decent selection of food and drinks. Ordered the Atlantic salmon and was served pipping hot and yummy! Worth a visit if you are around the vicinity and looking for decent and reasonable priced food.

Very god Italian food in small restaurant in a strip mall. Found this on Trip Advisor. You would not otherwise know it was there. Popular with locals. We tried ravioli with Bolognese sauce,chicken Picatta and chicken Saltimbocca all were excellent. Reasonable prices.
