Lunches are great with homemade soups daily. Crab cakes are delicious and all sandwiches impressive...eggplant, pork tenderloin, BLTs., burgers, etc.

This place is a small local cafe with pretty decent and reasonably priced food. I have been impressed with the service, the quality of the food and the price. Would recommend for an informal lunch or dinner.
