We visited Duluth for a day trip last year and ate here and when we came back this year for another day trip, it was the only thing we did again. For a take-away restaurant, the food is anything but simple. So yummy!

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Large variety and food was fantastic. Very little sitting space, thankfully it was a nice day and could sit outside. Would love to go back!

Food is delicious, but portion size is NOT large. Be prepared to pay a bit more for smaller portion. Atmosphere is nice and casual and servers have always been helpful and friendly.
