Food was very good. Excellent prices! Waitress was very helpful, and even made the exception for us to have breakfast after breakfast time was over.

Nice spot for lunch or dinner. Small, intimate dining room. Eclectic collection of whimsical ceramics and books. Good food, nice staff. You can sit and relax for along time, watching the world go by. They even have live music from time to time (great piano player). Give it a try, you will love it.

My girlfriend and I stopped in after visiting the bookstore. We had a lovely time and enjoyed everything about this little gem. It was a great time and the service was wonderful. This is somewhere that we will visit again.
