Eclectic is well named. We enjoyed reasonable counter service with hot food delivered to table outside. The chicken-veggie soup was a hot delight as was the turkey sandwich. Well worth seeking out.

Great lunch on a busy Saturday after Thanksgiving. Delicious roasted mushroom soup. Grilled cheese with apples so good. Flavored water or tea was a great addition to lunch.

Great lunch spot nestled in a an old brick building on Short Central, a pedestrian only downtown street. The menu is varied and there are always daily specials. We had a friend's birthday lunch there and sat out side and it was lovely.

Great little lunch place. I love their salads. I have never had a bad meal there. They have indoor or patio seating and great service. I am never disappointed when I choose to eat there!
