Stopped for dinner and had our usual Pick 2 combination. Autumn squash soup paired with a Greek Salad with quinoa and a chunk of sourdough bread. The soup was creamy and just the perfect temperature. The food was delivered to our booth in less than...More

This may be the right one. I have the receipt and the city. This was a pleasant alternative to the upscale pizza restaurant next door. We had soup and sandwiches. The atmosphere was quieter. There were students on computers, studying.
