...lawsuit with a Blue Goose cafe in Dallas caused a name change. Good lunch/brunch place. Good food and service. Especially salads (on my diet). Hear lots of raves on the sandwiches.

This is a an excellent sandwich/lunch place to go. The food is fresh, healthy, and attractively presented. The staff are consistently attentive, and the owner is usually on site. Comfortable. Great performers when available.
