Thank you for your review! We only serve breakfast and breakfast specials on weekends due to the number of people we have joining us. The cous cous is a monthly special which has gone over very well. Glad you enjoyed it Thanks again! John

Hadn't been to Otto's in some time and happily the wonderful fresh food is as good or better than ever. I had a great spinach ginger salad and a cup of the homemade tomato soup. Both were very tasty.
