Thank you Anita for your comments! Vivian
This small restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood near Meridian Street. One orders from a menu and then the food is delivered to your table. A friend and I both had the soup-half-sandwich and split a chocolate-peanut butter dessert. The soup was tasty and...More
