Amazing food, very friendly staff, and a pleasant, laid-back atmosphere. The Southwest Roasted Chicken Pasta is a must-try. Definitely not your average chicken and pasta plate. Little pricey but well worth it.

We were not to sure of this place because of the mixed reviews. We were so glad we went. Casual atmosphere, great service. The food was delicious. Freshly made and piping hot. We highly recommend it. A bit pricey but worth it.
