A New York style, Jewish, restaurant serving many of the traditional items. The soups are great as well as the selection of main courses. Located at the end of a tiny strip mall, on Oakland Avenue, it's easy to miss. I do takeouts of their...More

Ordered corn beef and cabbage. Yum. Lean meat, cabbage perfectly done and potato pancakes with crispy edges served with applesauce. Perfect. Fast efficient service. My only negative the restaurant could use a little up dating.
