Good food and good service on a consistent basis. Excellent for Wheeling, still good if it was in a larger town.

It had been a little while since we were here, and we see that the menu has expanded a great deal. We will definitely be going back more often as it was tough to decide what to get. The food is awesome and our waitress was very sweet and helpful.

Picked the restaurant due to the name of it. The server was very nice and patient (4 old ladies who couldn't decide). The food we ordered was very good and just the right size for lunch. We did ask about the name and the server..gave us the story behind it.

This unique restaurant located in the Centre Market shopping area is a must visit. They have a unique menu of crêpes, sandwiches, salads and deserts. Legal beverages are available but my favorite is their excellent coffee. Highly recommended!

Both meals were outstanding that my wife & I had! Our waitress recommended two entrees & we went with what she suggested. They were the Mac & rib sandwich and the black & white wrap. Wow!! Both were really good! They came with kettle chips which were also really good! You didn't dare let any of it go to waste!!... More

We were recommended to try this place from the WV Visitors information road stop. Great selection! In our party of 8 everyone LOVED his/her sandwich and/or crepe! Very creative but down to earth menu and location. The staff was outstanding. Outdoor seating available out front or in a cozy, shaded outdoor court yard area in the back. We will return... More

Had a great dinner here. The menu has unique selections (they specialize in crepes). Be adventurous and try one of their specialty drinks of the day, had the Earl Grey Martini, it sounds strange,but it was delicious. Also take the time to look at some neat Wheeling made products that are hanging on the walls.

Thank Angela D
