Good atmosphere, friendly service, a generous sandwich, and the best pesto soup I have ever had in my life, made this a perfect lunch for a hungry lady. I wish I lived closer so that I could visit more often. Kudos.

Decided to try someplace different for lunch. Tried the Grilled Cheese and Potato Soup combo. Very good and almost more than I could eat. Pricier than expected, but not terrible. I will likely return when downtown at lunchtime again. Service was good and nice atmosphere.

Stopped in for beer and desert. They were out of the brownie but the waitress made my wife a cookie ice-cream desert instead. The Pecan Pie is Yum! Not very sweet with plentiful amounts of pecans. The waitress warned me about a beer that she did not think was good. She provided a taste and it was the first beer... More

I came in with my fiancée on a Friday night and had a great experience. Our waitress did a good job and we really enjoyed our food. It's a fun environment too. We both agreed that the duck melt that I got was the highlight. The mashed potatoes were pretty good, and she enjoyed her grilled cheese and tomato bisque.

Here for business purposes so sadly I can't come back. However, I can tell you this is one of the best grilled cheese and soup combos I have ever had. I got the Euro double decker and the tomato bisque and I can't tell you the last time I've been this happy about a grilled cheese and soup. It is... More

Service is extremely poor no matter what time of the day or week it is. May take up to 35 minutes before you get waited on, another 10-15 minutes to get drinks, and another 45 minutes to get food on your table. This has been a consistent issue at this restaurant. The only thing going for them is that they... More

Great menu selection for both food and drink. Great restaurant if you're in downtown Fort Wayne. Parking is on the street with one hour limit meters or in a nearby garage. Meters take quarters. Our server was efficient but not overly friendly. The food took about fifteen minutes from kitchen to table. My sourdough bread was a little tough but... More

My friend and I ate lunch here 12-3-16 and we both got great food. The portions were generous and the pricing was fair. I would eat there again if I were in the area
