The food is great, and so is the coffee. Love that the lunch/brunch place is connected to the theater. One stop for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Fun eclectic diner-like restaurant. Family of four with varied tastes, but like BK, “special order don’t upset us”. Eggs cooked perfectly, fluffy pancakes and the 3 egg special omelette (homemade tapenade, sautéed spinach and local goat cheese) was awesome. I’m being told by the kids...More

This place is out of the way to most places one is on the way to. But if you’re in town this is a treat. Cross between a diner and a comfortable old place your folks took you when you were a kid. Best burger...More

Just went to a memorial celebration with 300 people there and have to say it was a cozy, well thought out venue with audio video capabilities (it is a movie house). Staff was superb and parking (sans a little mud) was more than adequate. A...More

Really good food, the service can be 'wisftul' (you have to sometimes remind the server, even when not busy, that you asked for certain things that never arrived), but a great and pleasant atmosphere with decent prices.

I ate here two nights in a row and on the second night went to the movies here. The service was friendly and the food good. Movies were a great experience, beats the multiplex any day!
