Had a delightful lunch with my daughter at Cindy's. The papaya and avocado salad was fabulous! We wanted to indulge in dessert, but we're too stuffed! An adorable setting with a fun staff and good food! Will return if in the area.

Salads are expertly prepared and there are menu options for everyone. Wine list is very good. Street parking available. Reservations recommended, especially in the... More

We were recommended to eat here by Colin at Hall Vineyards. He was right that this was a good place frequented by locals. The service was very good and we were not rushed along. I truly enjoyed the meat loaf as if had a very complimentary sauce adding to its flavor. They had a satisfactory wine offering as well as... More
