There was only one attendant on (it was a quiet Sunday afternoon) and the girl was fairly friendly. However, the menu was badly put together - it said things like " Sandwich with 2 [or with 3 in some cases] fillings of your choice" but there was no indication anywhere on the menu of what fillings were available, and we...

We had lunch here - soup and sandwiches. Coke to drink. It is a quaint little deli-type place, so you can get a light lunch. We also tried the apple tart with cream - yum!

Secondly, salmon was overcooked which results in DRY again fish. The salad consisting of cabbage and carrot...DRY! I mean what the heck you... More
