Went here because of a friend's recommendation, but did not know what to expect. It is a simple place that has the atmosphere of a lunch counter, rather than an exotic restaurant. I decided to try the day's special, Spicy Chicken Maffen over fufu. The...More

Best coconut ice cream I've ever had. Hubby had black raspberry and hazelnut. I was full from dinner. I was offered the kiddie size. They have seating inside and out. They accept visa

Go here! By no means should my review deter you from trying this place. It is lovely, the man who owns it is super friendly and kind, and the food is yummy. I had the peanut goat bowl and it was fine-- it wasn't spiced...More

This is a review for Sav's Ice Cream shop across from his restaurant. I can't believe it has taken me so long to try this place! I LOVE ice cream and Sav's did not disappoint. All of the flavors are made there and include ice...More
