They have indoor dining, but on a nice day you want to sit outside under the arbor--you don't even realize you are near Los Alamitos Blvd.--instead you feel as though you are in someone's garden more in the countryside. I had the tuna melt and enjoyed it. My one friend went with the turkey melt and the other with the... More

This place has everything; ambiance, great service, and great food. Reservations are recommended, especially if you want to dine on the patio. Make sure you try the fritters. Parking is limited and located behind the restaurant. Prices are a little on the high side but well worth it. Salad lovers will love the condiment basket. Plan on spending some time,... More

I have been here a number of times for work events, private parties, brunch, etc. It has a lovely setting in a garden; and the menu is appetizing and appeals to every taste. It may not be the easiest restaurant to get to; but it is worthwhile.

It's all well put... More

I have been here many times and it never disappoints. The beignets severed with every meal are SO good, and the outside space is beautiful. Great place to go for a romantic dinner, and equally good with a group for a nice lunch.

The atmosphere here is comfortable, The cottage style restaurant has a large outside patio complete with rows of lights and plenty of pants and decor. The food is a bit on the higher side but all was very good. I had the Texas style beef brisket, other food ordered was the pork chops, super yummy, and Grannys friend chicken. When... More

The indoor and outdoor eating areas are very cozy, the food and wines were very good, I had a half portion and that was too much. The main meals come with fantastic apple fritters, soup or salad, good value. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and happy! And the adjacent buildings are the loveliest gift shops, like a wonderland... More

First time at this restaurant since it moved from Belmont Shore and I was under th impression we were going to lunch. They do not serve breakfast so we had a wonderful lunch. The restaurant is a very pretty cottage-like place with a wonderful patio in the garden/pond area. The restaurant is famous for its fried chicken and delirious apple... More
