Chicken club sandwich. Lots of garlic and salt. But a 25 minute wait with only a few other patrons. I orginally ordered a haddock sandwich, but they were "out of flour". Hmmmm.....won't be back.

Best praise for a place like this is that we've never had a bad meal or experience there. They serve large portions of good food from a pretty varied menu. I always opt for the 3-egg omelet and have never been disappointed. We've been there...More
