We had Caroline's Huevos Rancheros and the Salmon Eggs Benedict. Both were delicious. This is Vegetarian food at its best. The service was a bit odd but the server was very nice. Loved the laid back vibe.

Tons of options for my husband and I as vegans! The food and drinks were really very good! The staff were all friendly and helpful! My only complaint is that they aren't closer to Connecticut!

Loved the food. So many choices hard to decide what to order. I got the mushroom, roasted pepper and goat cheese salad which was wonderful. My husband had the salmon and pesto sandwich which i think was even better than my salad and salmon is...More
