Friendly waitresses, atmosphere and great arrangements of booths etc. The food is always great tasting. The bread is great. The price is moderate. Great place to check out when you are eating out.

Cute, cute restaurant has that Bohemian flare. There are areas, though, that need some repairs - water damage from ceiling down the wall was obvious in spots. But with that aside, the atmosphere was very warm and comfortable. And the food was very good. The...More
