The Hidden Cafe is truly a hidden gem. I had lunch with two friends and we all enjoyed our lunch. The salad dressing is to die for. It was a very generous portion which I enjoyed the next day. One friend enjoyed the lamb kabobs,...More

This is a place where you go to dine, leisure service, excellent service and very good food. You will not be rushed and have time to enjoy your meal.

It took us awhile to discover this place--it really is hidden--but we've been regulars ever since. About once a month for years now. Not much has changed over those years, which is a good thing. There is a sign over the bar here that says,...More

Everything was good, though not great. Enjoyed the heavy garlic in the salad dressing. The menu is not too large, but big enough everyone found something they liked. The steak was nicely cooked, all the sides were tasty. Very popular though, make a reservation if...More
