I don't know how they stay in business. My dinner was cold. We asked for bread several times in which we never received. The waitress was rude. It was hard leaving a 2 cent tip!

Service was terrible. Asked for bread at least four times and it never came. Food was cold. Waitress was rude. Don't bother.

Lunch here was quite pleasant sitting in the "greenhouse" area. The food was very tasty. Fresh crisp salads and healthy sandwiches. I do like this place although it is in an odd location.
