Always love coming here for lunch. The local artwork is awesome, and the food is amazing and just the right amount. I got the Ruben sandwich with carrot salad. Their carrot salad is to die for! I could eat it everyday! Check it out, great local food and cool art.

I really enjoyed the waitstaff who were kind and helpful and additionally all the food and drinks we had were wonderful. I... More
