Excellent little place worth a try in Carlisle. They have a small menu but I have tired many items on it and they have all been good. I would recommend this place!

The door is located off an ally (Back Door) with the original "Front Door" on display. We ate inside but you can choose to eat outside weather permitting. We were in a hurry and got excellent and prompt service. The food was excellent and consistent...More
