Went in a party of six, we all had very good food. Café is under reorganization- call to confirm opening times. The food is as great as it ever was, Service was good–not rushed like some places. Ambiance is mellow, a good place for conversation.

We went to Grand Cafe for our anniversary this year, and had a fantastic quiet, intimate dinner. The food and wine were terrific - I still think about it months later. Service is good, atmosphere allows for conversation.

Be forewarned, the menu on Sunday night is limited. We had mixed opinions of the food. Pizza, salad, and corn soup were very good. Flavors and textures on the octopus small plate were too contrasting to be enjoyable. The big problem was the service. We...More

One of my go-to breakfast restaurants. Very cozy atmosphere. They play Popeye cartoons on the wall on the weekends.
