Good food in a smallish restaurant. There is usually a line to get in. Food is delicious but it is a bit noisy. Open for lunch only!

Try the hot vegetarian & the soup of the day & you'll leave smiling. It's small & crowded, friendly & fast. If you happen to hit either the red bell pepper or yellow bell pepper soup day, you are a lucky diner.

Do you want to eat somewhere really good? Daily soup made fresh everyday cream of mushroom or butternut or asparagus etc. Fresh salads, sandwiches on fresh made bread, good robust arabica coffee. Good things done well time after time. Well do you?

Always enjoy the food here. It tastes so fresh and good portions. My only negative is the closeness of the tables, one feels as though you're sitting on top of other people. I thought there is a rule for table spacing by DHEC.
