We often find the best little restaurants in nondescript shopping centers and this no exception. Obviously a local favorite too. Excellent wait staff, quick service, and nice combination sandwiches which we all ordered for lunch, even a glass of wine which is always nice.

My wife & I decided to have lunch at this little cozy restaurant prior to going to Bethel, CT. Summer Festival on Saturday. My wife & I both loved our lunch. Our server was really nice & friendly. We were even approached by the owner to make sure everything was ok. We were both really impressed. We will definitely return.

Not at all what I expected - it looks as if it would be a tiny hole-in-the-wall from size of the little strip shopping center, but it's quite large and comfortable. Now that we know... More

This restaurant is "plain" only in the fact that it doesn't get all over you about its own wonderfulness! The dining room is cozy and attractive – and blissfully quiet! You can actually TALK with your dinner companions… And the food is quite a bit more than you might have been thinking it would be. I had a tilapia filet,... More
