I stopped by for lunch on July 3, which was a busy day. Fortunately, I went before 1 pm, as it was full shortly after that. Service was a little slow due to the crowd, but food was great.

I had the asparagus fritters, which were attractively placed in a pyramid shape and served over greens and tomatoes with a dressing. My son had the havarti dill"grilled cheese" which had a nice lemony tang to it. The ginger tea special was too powerful.

In the entry way to the restaurant they have lots of signs that all share a very liberal point of view. I guess that is OK in a very liberal college town. They must not lose much business by being so partisan. Food was good...More
