I go to the local all the time, and though it can be kind of expensive, the food is always delicious. They also have great ice cream and good WiFi. The staff’s level of enthusiasm is hit or miss, however.

Cute little restaurant and friendly service. Pricy for very average food. We had the turkey reuben and salad/soup, cost was $26. Considering that the quality of the ingredients was very low quality, think grocery store packaged meat, cheap rolls, etc., we were disappointed and would...More
