Always have lots of well-prepared food, quickly served, and great coffee. A great place to come and watch people, or to study, or to hang out with a group. Besides, they allow well-behaved dogs in the outside petio.. A great place!

Great place to hang out or meet someone. Prices keep creeping up and the food is ok. Several outstanding dishes but overall the quality has not kept pace with the price. Slice of pie or cake would buy you 2-3 gallons of gas ! To...More
