Glad we stopped for traditional Smittys breakfasts. Hot coffee, ice water and yummy Ukrainian skillet meal. Our great waitress knew the locals and helped the tourists with questions. General decor but nice and cosy for coffee.

Met friends for dinner short time ago. It was their choice. Liver and onions on the menu and 3 of us had that. Liver itself was sliced really thin and was not that good. Veggies etc were fine. Have had breakfast there in the past...More

I like that they have liver, and that the staff mostly leave you alone when you just want to eat while reading a good book. I hated the butter-chicken dip thing tho. was so gross.
