Always busy. Excellent soup. Try the pimento cheese grilled sandwich. Chicken salad is worth trying. Friendly employees. Bakery sells top notch food. A bit pricey but the food is fresh.

The brocolli cheese soup is rich. The raspberry tea, flavorful. The hard part is choosing a dessert since they are all fabulous. The grilled pimiento cheese sandwich is addictive. The chicken salad is delicious-probably the best in Ft Worth. Go often and enjoy!!

Seating is ample, but this place does get crazy busy at lunch. We lucked out, beating the droves of people who came in after us. I don’t understand the hype, but to be fair this was our first visit—maybe we just hit it on a...More
