Good waitress made all the difference to allowing a relaxing lunch. The gourmet grilled cheese with cup of soup was delicious and filling. Moderate pricing on the lunch menu.

I still mourn the demise of the original location, but having been several times lately to the new place, I think the food is getting better there. Recently I had the tuna dish - kind of a salad, but the tuna has a siracha sauce...More
