Stopped in here to pick up lunch to bring back to a meeting at the Hotel Rex. I ordered a Greek salad with grilled chicken. Salad was good and chicken freshly made. Cooking the (juicy) chicken took a a while, but it was good. No...More

Horrible service. I might as well jump in the kitchen and made it myself. Server was rude, kept forgetting our water and kept on saying "water is comin" food was cold when it finally arrived. I would've been happier at macdonalds

This little restaurant typically serves fare to people staying in hotels very nearby or folks taking a break from businesses nearby. Nice breakfasts; bagels at a good price. Coffee is good and when it comes to dinner's, I'd find another location. Take out available.
