Very clean place, to start with. The food was fresh, plentiful, and delicious! Fresh baked bread is served to everyone, and it was great!

I love this restaurant ! The food is so fresh and filling. The desserts are one of a kind! There is plenty to satisfy and it's hard to choose.

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.
