A must stop for us whenever visiting Gainesville. It has an eclectic menu: while I ate Spicy Pork Chili my companion enjoyed a pesto chicken sandwich. Just perfect for a cool January evening. Luscious desserts too. Go early or be ready to wait.

Excellent and interesting food. Been to the top many times. Never had a bad meal. Service is a bit slow, and it could take over an hour to get seated.
