Stopped by for lunch. Service was so-so. Ordered the Rueben and a burger. Also requested some chicken soup.... took forever for soup! Wait staffer said they had to add to the broth and then reheat because it was too thick????

We stopped in for lunch and were surprised at the quality of the food in this small town restaurant. There are many places to eat in Livingston but please support the downtown businesses that are family owned and operated. You will not be disappointed.

We stop here every time as a family tradition. On drop of day we have club sandwiches and Rubens. In pick up day it is a great place for a late breakfast. This represents the perfect small town USA cafe.
