We had lunch at a sidewalk table. Dutch split pea soup was the best U have ever had. Friendly waitresses in a pleasant little sidewalk cafe atmosphere in the heart of the city.

We were escorted to a table, 6 other groups can in after us. No one came to take our order. We finally left after a table near us received their food after arriving after us. Can't comment on the food as we never saw any.

Came upon this place, saw the muffins and had to drop in. Then had breakfast...very good! It's hard to find the right well cooked potato pancakes but this place hit it. Very good!!

Delicious food - super busy - the only complaint I have is that they brought out each persons meal separately -like 5 minutes apart - I think they were just super busy though!
