Stopped for a casual afternoon meal on a very chilly day. It was a great choice. Very nice lunch menu. Roasted garlic soup was delicious and Mike's Mac and Cheese was to. Close and cozy.

The food is fantastic! The service is GREAT! Prices are appropriate. The pasta is cooked perfectly. We've never had anything that wasn't excellent. Highly recommended. Great find in a quaint, small town.

Just off of the chaotic traffic circle downtown is this gem of a cafe. Enjoyed the red, white & bleu pizza at the table in the window. Decor was midwest homey and beautiful. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was excellent and always...More

We stopped here for lunch while driving through Urbana based on a local recommendation. It's on the town square and we found it to be a unique and charming restaurant. It's small and only seats about 40 but at lunch time on a weekday, we...More
