Food is always good. We have eaten here a few times now and are never disappointed. We have eaten roast dinners to salads and all are delicious. Atmosphere is casual and relaxed with friendly helpful staff. Robert's also sell fresh eggs which are delicious.

Good, basic style food and very large helpings. I had the salmon quiche that came with a very large side salad that was very tasty. Couldn't finish the salad cuz I wanted to be able to finish the creamy quiche. Very good lunch place.
