After experiencing a not-so-friendly service at an adjacent restaurant, I stopped at the Aster Cafe. The food was good and the service was great! I would highly recommend the Aster Cafe for a wonderful casual lunch experience.

That is incredibly unlikely. I live very close to this restaurant and have never seen a hotel shuttle on the main. The only shuttles one will see are private that are reserved for weddings. Taxis also do not frequent the... More
