Great food. We ordered a pretzel appetizer - it was so yummy. Fresh with homemade cheese sauce and spicy mustard. The only had soup for lunch because the pretzel was not just good but huge!! Excellent place to get a feel for Hartford.

You can either park for free on the street after 6 PM or use the public garage on the corner of Market and Talcott. (The garage is one block behind City Steam.)
