My husband and I ate at this restaurant for the first time few days ago. When we walked in, I was immediately disappointed in the atmosphere. I only became more disappointed when I looked at the very limited menu and didn't understand most of it....More

Still serving great food in a casual setting with a full bar. The portions are the perfect size, some might find the prices a bit much. I would have to agree with some of the reviews the parking is at a premium, be content if...More

The Modern Cafe is an excellent place for lunch time dinners with the specialty in pot-roast and meat loaf. Portions are quite generous; soups are very tangy. The place is not as good in the evenings. So go there for weekday meals in an atmosphere...More

Went with a group of seven and had a great booth in the back. The food is comfort food with a twist. Overall the group tried about 5 different entrees and all indicated they were very good. If you like stuffing try the chrizo terrine.
