Fresh food and friendly service. Low key atmosphere for lunch. Had the gryo and it was tasty and satisfying. French fries were ok, but that's not what I came for. Will come back again when in town.

When you arrive at a strange town and spot with no expectations and just reviews on the web......and it's a grand slam fantastic place!!!!! Unique and cool from the outside. Even cooler and nostalgic inside. Worth a visit just just to look around. Great selection for all palates I went for a gluten free special by the chef. Sesame salad,... More

I've been there a few times and it's always been good. The dining room is filled with vintage toys, and other antiques. If you like that sort of thing, cool. If won't be your cup of tea. The service is friendly, and the place has a casual feel, like your eating at a friend's house. The menu has a solid... More

It's the lights that get you first. Strings of twinkly lights in the windows, the ceiling and maybe even the floor, I can't remember. It's like magical bookstore from a bygone era, turned into a welcoming cafe that beckons you from the road: "Come in! Join Us!" Nothing fancy here--rickety tables and tons of rusty memorabilia on high shelves offering... More

I came here based on a recommendation from a local. I really liked the character of the restaurant. The servers were friendly and provided great service. The food was also delicious. The only issue was that they didn't have enough shawarma patties for my meal, but we were able to figure that out because I wasn't extremely hungry.

Their signature salad with feta is a must - add grilled chicken for a healthy, hearty meal. The hummus is the best by far & any of the daily specials are worth a try.

This cute little house (turned into restaurant) with TONS of fun memorabilia, has the best hummus in the world! I get their Tahini on my salad, as a dressing, since I am not a fan of the lemon dressing it typically comes with (most people love it, so try it if you love lemon). All of the Mediterranean stuff is... More

Called to make sure they were open and could take our party of 5 at 7PM. First phone call they answered, but said "hold on" put the phone down and then never returned to the phone.

Stopped in for a dinner salad and were very happy with the Sesame Seed Salad with a small side of humus. Was just a relaxed pleasant atmosphere, seemed to be a landing spot for some regular locals but very welcoming to those who haven't been there before as well. Great place for couples or friends ... would definitely recommend.
