All reviews brunch mushroom soup quesadilla bread crab cakes fish tacos dessert case located in a small strip mall ladies bathroom lunch with friends drink order small plates mexi booth wrap slice lettuce
My mom and I were shopping in the area and decided to stop in. We came in on a Monday around 12:30pm. We were greeted immediately. We were told to choose any table we liked. Our server came over almost immediately, welcomed us to the...restaurant and took our drink order. We took some time to look over the menu.
My mom ordered the Signature Reuben (house made corned beef, Swiss cheese, 1000 island dressing, coleslaw, marble rye) with pasta salad and pickle. She loved it. The beef was delicious and tender and was a fairly thick cut. The bread was crispy, the toppings were fresh, and she loved the pasta salad.
I ordered the Mexi Wrap (grilled chicken, avocado, cheddar jack cheese, pico de gallo, romaine lettuce, lime cilantro sauce, chipotle tortilla) with pasta salad. The pasta salad was really good. It was a tri-color rotini with cheese and peas mixed in. It was creamy, but not heavy. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the mexi wrap was okay but I probably wouldn’t order it again. Everything inside was fresh, but it was about 60% lettuce. For the chicken I did get, I received pretty large chunks and the chicken was juicy. I couldn’t really taste the lime cilantro sauce.
Our server was very friendly. She answered any questions we had and refilled our glasses without us asking. She also checked in on us from time to time.
The restaurant was nice inside. It definitely had a neighborhood bistro kind of feel. They have a catering area next door. Parking can be a bit tight since it’s in an area with other businesses. They offer desserts, pastries, etc., which looked pretty good. There was a section for day old items for a discounted price near the door. The ladies bathroom had a table with mouth wash, tampons, pads, hair spray and room spray. This is genius! I thought that was a smart and kind thing to offer.
My mom ordered a crab cake sandwich with a side salad for my dad to-go. He’s very picky about crab cakes but he did like this one. He thought it was good. The toppings were fresh, as was the salad.
Overall, we enjoyed the food and the service. We would return!More
Wandered in thinking I wanted something just a notch up from the nearby Subway. This was a big notch! On the one hand, in the booth next to my table was a mom with two girls under 6 and a 10-month-old boy, celebrating his first...haircut, so obviously not a curled pinky kind of place. On the other hand, whatever they served looked fantastic, was plated with an eye to making your mouth water, and (from what I ate and saw others tucking into) was innovative and delicious. I was feeling a bit sad to leave Maryland without eating crabmeat. They offered crab cakes, but I don't really love that, so found (in their so-called small plates- ha!) a crab and avocado quesadilla, small amount of mozarrella melted in, with an Old Bay remoulade. Not sure exactly what was in the remoulade, but the combination of fresh flavors, textures, and spices was heavenly and very filling. That and a glass of water and I felt as if I had eaten a big meal. It was perfect. They had amazing huge baked desserts, but there was no way I could manage a slice so I just admired the tray that the server walked around with and feasted on it with my eyes. The room is very simple and casual, just booths and tables. Located in a small strip mall/office space across from several similar ones, it is easy to access. Service was friendly although not super quick, as they got very busy (understandably). Prices were in the upscale direction, a bit more than diner level, not stratospheric though, and you ARE getting something special there. A place where those in the know must choose to go, not just to eat something, but to savor their meal without any pretentiousness.More
A friend and I were visiting Annapolis friends and came here for lunch. It was excellent! The menu is broad, lots of different things! Good appetizers,sandwiches, salads, main dishes...and their desserts are very tempting!!
They also have small plates. I looked at salmon as a...small plate or as a salad and opted for the salad. Good choice! A generously large piece of salmon, excellent light vinaigrette dressing, and plentiful salad! Comes with a small muffin -- nice touch.
My friends had the Reuben, soup & salad option, and fish tacos. All great! Two had dessert -- it looked wonderful! Almost forgot -- one friend had a cup of the mushroom soup -- she ate every bit!!
Lisa was our server, she was very helpful and very patient with us. We had a very good time! Just wish it was closer!More
I've been here twice for lunch with friends and loved it. If I lived closer I would come more often, for sure. My crab cake salad was perfection, and everything in the dessert case was very tempting (though I didn't order anything--this time). Great cappuccino....The interior is sunny with comfortable booths, great service with a smile, and a varied & inviting menu that includes wine. Don't overlook it because it is in a shopping mall, because somehow it doesn't feel at all like you are in a shopping mall. This is my new favorite spot for a long lunch or breakfast.More
Had two meals here this week - one was a late breakfast and the second a late lunch. Why did I put the term "late"...? Just to show that the quality of service and food did not change even after the main time frame for...each of the meals. Our family enjoyed our food. The lunch - Ruben sandwich, Hummus plate, french onion soup.... and to add - the cakes are great. We had the carrot cake - highly recommend itMore
A happening tourist place with nice traditional main street famous for ice-cream, chocolates and fudges. The place has rich heritage of arts, culture and theater. Had a good walk on the main street with music playing and market full of tourists, variety of cars and...bikes.More
I don't think anyone would be forcibly ejected for wearing a cap, but it's generally considered boorish and ill-mannered for a man to wear a cap in a restaurant (unless he's wearing it for medical or religious reasons.)
