Summertime is perfect for Melissa's Chicken Salad and Fruit plate. So good, fresh and filling. Today's fruit included apples, pineapple, orange slices, red and green grapes, strawberries. I ordered mine without the Craisens.

Been here a half dozen times and it's always just okay. Average staff and atmosphere and average food. Sometimes I feel the meal was adequately priced and sometime a bit high but overall reasonable.
