This is a great place for a delicious lunch. But I always walk away with something later for desert. They are unbelievable!!!

While they do not have a huge menu, they have some interesting selections. My wife had the chicken pot pie and I chose the Thai rice bowl. Both were well prepared and had a great flavor to them. The lunch menu also features salads and sandwiches. Though they do have a dessert menu, I always like going into the bakery... More

Black Forest has been a favorite place for lunch for many years. This time, however, we went for dinner. The menu is quite different from the last time I was there, with Vietnamese and Korean offerings. My dinner partner enjoyed the chicken rice bowl and I enjoyed my seafood crepes. The service is friendly and prompt. Delightful looking desserts are... More

The four of us went there on Martin Luther King Day. The place was busy, but this didn't interfere with our service. I had the Mediterranean Falafel Salad, which is Unique, tasty and healthy. My husband had the Reuben. My son had the cheeseburger. It was served with their homemade ketchup. My daughter had the childrens' pasta. It was fun... More

I have never been disappointed here. I've been going since they opened. I don't know how many quarts of soup we've bought, but they've all been good. The baked goods are superb. I've had many birthday cakes from here, as well as scones, fig bars, and cookies. The restaurant is also fantastic. Never had bad service or food. The second... More

i cannot resist the banana cream pie!! There are so many wonderful things, I never leave with less than 5 items. Their little wraps are really good too. The chicken salad is my favorite! Great place for holiday specialities or anytime you need a little sweetness in you day.

Stopped here on my way down Route 101. I had gone here a long while ago and things haven't changed a lot. The food is kind'a yuppie (or whatever the new term might be). The menu is limited but everyone should find something they'd like. The servings, to me, were just right, but might be small if you are a... More

Been wanting to stop here for lunch or dinner after sampling their bakery - that is alone worth a stop. Had a group of eight towards the end of their brunch hours and the service was excellent. Treated to scratch pastries & biscuits & house made jam...for starters. We all ordered everything from crabcake benedict (nice!), breakfast burrito (huge and... More

A nice little spot to grab lunch. The menu has lots of healthy options, but beware there is a bakery that has the most yummy desserts, you can't walk past it as it is worth stopping in for a treat.
