Thanks for coming in guys! Lol the random decor is the theme itself. Random things given by guests and local markets. I do a mean vegetarian cheesesteak if you come back!

We enjoyed a late lunch at Ryans using a Groupon. The restaurant atmosphere was as if you joined Ryan in his kitchen while you watched him prepair your food. He interacts with his customers personally to find out exactly how you wanted your food prepared....More

This was a fresh and pleasant surprise. Salad and Sandwich were creative and healthy. Looks like the young couple working were the owners and took great care in preparing everything. Service was great and steady traffic. No microwaved eggs here.

Cinnamon Roll French Toast is worth stopping for...potatoes were diced and mixed with onion -- stellar preparation. Coffee is of high quality. Make this a stop before/after a spring training visit!
