The capers salad is a great twist on the basic. Very good portions too. Carry service to the tables went well & they make a great latte.

My husband and I got takeout lunch from here. His steak and cheese was good. My roasted turkey was good actually more than good but the tomato bisque was fantastic! I savored every bite and licked the remnants!’

Super popular place, so avoid the lunch rush if possible. I find the specials are always better than the regular fare, so trust in their creativity, especially if it is a pannini. I ha e never had a bad meal here, and they deliver!

Fast, good food. Service is friendly even when crowded. It is a great place for breakfast. Coffee is exceptionally good, not the usual bland stuff you find at most places.

This is about as classic as you can get for a coffeehouse. They have the chalk board, the counter, the pastries. We came here by accident because our usual place was closed. There is a lot of seating here. They must pack in a crowd....More
