Always enjoy coming here. With the wife or with the whole family. The deserts are as wide ranging as they are good. The many coffees on offer are simply delicious! Would recommend to anyone.

Been here a million times over the years. Open late. Junk food as well as healthy. Something for everyone. Service was a little slow this last time but not horrible. Especially since it was so late. I usually get the grilled chicken salad on a...More

I dont know where to start with this place; I'll try to keep it as short as possible, however hard that may be. My girlfriend and i have been to Inkwell twice, both after 10 pm for a late night meal. I've heard about Inkwellfrom...More

My friends and I frequent this place year round. The unfortunate part is that you never get out of there in under an hour because the wait staff assumes you're there to hang out and drink coffee all night. Most of the time, we're just...More
