Went there today with 2 friends for breakfast. Was seated at a very small round table with 1 chair & a bench. I asked if we would all fit and person seating us snapped at me, very rude. I ordered the quiche, over cooked, dry...More

I visited this cafe after 6 years and it is as charming as before. The space is cosy, with art that is not present just as a decor but has some meaning for the owners. The food is delicious and presented elegantly. The owners treat...More

Olya and Pat on this restaurant which is right across from our apartment. We’ve been there about 100 times for breakfast lunch and dinner. They are both very delightful people and the atmosphere is very nice, inside and out.

Pictures and enjoyed the food. Waiting to hear the stories. Several people had prepared their stories. You learn a lot from what people say and what they leave out

This is a small, cozy hideaway in an Oak Park neighborhood...nothing fancy. But the food was delicious, and reasonably price for what you got. I had the Tilapia which was grilled to perfection. The host/chef/waiter was friendly and very helpful. We will be back.

The menu has many options all served/plated just a little different than other similar restaurants. I personally enjoy the lox and bagel plate as well as the quiche. On another visit I had the lobster bisque soup and a salad. The food always tastes fresh...More
