We went for desserts, and they were very accommodating. The place is not attracive, but the deserts were very good. Prices were reasonable. We ate inside bacause of the weather, but it looked nice on the patio.

I had a great experience while at the restaurant. I thought the service and food was excellent. However, when I returned home, I started vomiting. I will never return to this restaurant.

This is a quaint little restaurant, located away from the main hustle and bustle of Chestnut Hill. I've been here for brunch, lunch and dinner. Although it is a tad bit overpriced, I think that the food here is very good. The chefs care about...More
