The food here is great and so is the atmosphere. It's nice when there is a band to listen too. They also have beer and wine.

Vegetarians, healthy eaters, gluten free diet? No sweat. My favorites are the GF soups that change daily, Scandinavian egg salad on toasted GF bread, pear and greens salad with maple-mustard dressing, and macaroons.
