Stop what you are doing and go enjoy some Albanian sausages! They are the perfect sunday brunch meal with eggs and greens. In addition to the ethnic entrees, they offer Turkish coffee. If you never have had Turkish coffee, you are in for a treat....More

I have eaten lunch here twice in recent weeks with co-workers. The lunch specials are delicious, and it is nice to have both breakfast and lunch menu items available. We like the cozy atmosphere, and the staff is friendly. We will return!

An unexpected bathroom stop, prompted a late lunch gem! Our picky young granddaughter had plenty to eat off the kids menu, while her twin brother enjoyed the regular menu. Generous portions along with delicious cabbage salad were enjoyed by all!

Standard breakfast/brunch menu. The Eggs Benedict were delicious, especially the hollandaise sauce. Try the Albanian sausage options (made with lamb). Service...More
