The food is consistently top notch. Service is professional and friendly. Georgia is the owner and never misses the opportunity to check in and visit. The value is outstanding.

Managed to have lunch here after a couple of failed attempts because it was so busy. What more can I say, great food, great service, good prices. Can totally understand why it gets so busy on occasions. Will go again.

Great food and service. Instead of lining up at restaurants such as McKinney Roe or Spoon and Stable for a table, try this location instead. The staff is way more charming and the meal portions are generous. It is also cheaper.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times, and I have always had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is not exceptional. It certainly can't compare to the interior of the Loring Cafe. But it is charming and quaint. The service is excellent, but it is...More

If you are ever in Minneapolis this Mediterranean restaurant is a must visit. The bread you start off with is absolutely delicious. The food is fresh and very flavorful. Service is on fleek. Definitely a must try!
