The carrot cake was wonderful, have never had one before that was this outstanding. The corn chowder was excellent. The carrot ginger soup was just okay. The turkey sandwich was good... could have used a piece of lettuce or other greenery to jazz it up.

The curry chicken salad was good, but could have used a little more seasoning, even a pinch of salt would have helped and some more mayonnaise. The chunks of chicken were too large for me, but others might like that. Others in my group had...More
