This place is a great cafe. But unlike a lot of them, they have a liquor license. Great sandwich’s, fresh ingredients, pair it with your favorite beer, wine, or cocktail. Thankyou Dish!

This place has good fresh food. What's more, for a person who needs gluten free options, this is a very good choice.

Thoroughly enjoyed their Budda Bowl. The remodeled digs are very inviting and as usual the staff are great.

I ordered a wrap to go (the Grumpy) so I can't speak to the dining experience . . . but the wrap was amazing. Huge and loaded with fresh ingredients; I couldn't eat it all in one sitting. Delicious!

The menu has a wide variety of smoothies or you can make your own selection. They also have a bar area. Server sandwiches and small meal. Great for a quick bite to eat.

Ordered gf wrap and avocado grilled cheese with bacon. Friends weren't happy with lemonade and were offered free substitute. Pleasant and clean. Tasty hot soup selections. Reasonable price.

Came here with my 1.5 y/o daughter to meet friends and we loved it. The guacamole was DELISH. They gave a kids menu and high chairs and even had an area for toys.

This is a casual restaurant where you order at the counter and dip your own soup and pour your own drink. My salad was freshly prepared and very good and the soup was tasty. There were multiple soups. I ate outside. The pizza and sandwiches...More

Very good home made soups. Good healthy sandwiches. Would give it 5 stars but the pork in my Cuban seemed strong. First time I've not finished a sandwich here. In general food is flawless. They now have a bar since the my last visit here.
