We are here at a stopover in mobile on a Friday evening. We had the soup of the day, white bean and chorizo, and a couple of bacon cheeseburgers. The soup was creamy and spicy, a lot of thought and effort went into making it....More

I enjoyed the soup of the day which was a roasted pepper. I then had the duck panini with spiced mango salad. Delicious and unlike anything I've ever experienced before.
