It was so good we went two nights in a row! The first night we stumbled upon the place, ordered the evening specials and were blown away by the fresh taste combinations. We had simple dishes, but the flavors were anything but simple. The grilled...More

Very cute little place with good food. Had a late lunch which consisted of a small chicken salad sandwich on their specialty bread and a small green salad. The house vinaigrette dressing was very good.

Four of us ate there and we all loved our entrees. The room was a little on the dark side and tables are close together. The service was a little slow. Would eat there again.

A wonderful spot for lunch or dinner. Everything was super fresh and yummy, including shepherds pie, lasagna, meatloaf and a turkey sandwich. The oatmeal-molasses bread is featured heavily, and deserves to be. Service was friendly and attentive too.

We were four people who ordered four different lunches and every one was absolutely delicious. Two of us got salad and soup from the "lighter appetite" part of the menu. The broccoli cheddar soup was seriously the best I have had anywhere and the buttery...More

We ate dinner here and loved the ambiance and service. We split the shepherd's pie which is unlike any you've ever tried...but excellent. We ordered an extra salad. The downside? The salads were tiny and mainly had greens. My dish came with a long hair...More
