My only complaint is about the spinach nachos. Waste of money! The only thing you get with this is the tortilla chips topped with something similar to creamed spinach. Nothing else comes on the nachos! No salsa, cheese, sour cream, onions... nothing! Quite boring! Now I do love the California Dreaming salad!! The rolls with it are scrumptious!!! I will... More

My husband loves this salad and will go out f his way to eat there. It is a bit noisy but service was great and it has a variety of other food.

My wife had eaten here before and encouraged us (our family of four) to stop here for lunch. Good decision! The salads were delicious ... and I'm not even a salad person. Our kids enjoyed the variety on the menu and the warm croissants. We will definitely come back the next time we are in the Atlanta area.

They take reservations and some nights you need it...Big booths that hold several people; tables that can be put together. Nice menu - The portions are huge & we split a salad and a sandwich. Good service..clean place & we enjoyed our food!

We celebrated a birthday here a few weeks ago and it was a mess. Granted we did have a large party and we didn't expect to have the fast service, but we sat down at 7:30 and they didn't start taking orders for almost an hour, because it took them that long to get the beverages. There were at least... More

Went here for a business lunch, and can honestly say that the food was okay. I ordered a burger, my colleague had a very bizarre chicken salad. The chicken looked like tempura fried chicken (weird!). The portions were large, but the food is not worth the price and the very long wait time. We went during their lunch rush hour... More
