Been here a few times and have never had anything less than a delightful feed. Just a few things to consider 1 . If you'e there between 12 & 2 you'll spend a long time queueing and you won't get a seat. 2. They insist...More

Very good value and incredibly tasty comfort food. The portion sizes are very generous and the service was efficient. Some really good vegetarian and vegan options (I'd recommend the split pea and lentil gumbo!) It's quite a small place so you can't always guarantee a...More
