Four of us went here for lunch. Prettiest decor I've seen in a cafe: LOVED it! Service was fine. Their chips are spectacular. Their cakes are also spectacular. Nice coffee. Will be back.

Stopped in here for lunch with my mom because they had gluten free offerings. I really enjoyed my Caesar salad and my mom had a gluten free Caesar wrap. Good food, nice atmosphere.
