This place was never the same after it lost it's founding Chef. It has been closed for a couple months. I can list sever reasons why they had problems but what good would it do now.

The menu is creative and ecclectic at the same time. The food is second to none. The menu and specials are always changing to keep things interesting. The steak sandwich is to die for. The grilled cheese is not like your mama made.

We go for all meals but breakfast and dessert is my favorite. I believe my wife and child like lunch/dinner the best. You really can't go wrong with this place. Order anything and you will likely enjoy it. There numerous food allergy options as well.

Had breakfast here this morning, and it was ok I guess. I had their "Almond Joy Latte" which was fantastic. I don't usually order fancy espresso drinks but I'm glad I did and will definitely be back for another cup. Their baked goods are also...More
