Menu is simple and choices are great. Fast service and very friendly workers. You can take your time and visit with friends. You also have a choice of eating indoors or outdoors and people watch as you eat.

There is generally a line at lunch; however it moves quickly. All the meats, veggies and fruit are fresh..as is the freshly baked bread. Prices are reasonable for the amount of food you are served. Inside and outside seating.
