Great food with a welcoming atmosphere in a college town. The menu has great options and I am a big fan of their club and chicken sandwiches. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is very accommodating.

Perfect atmosphere, food and service. It is convenient to campus and a place to return to for sure. I recommend the flat iron steak wrap and adamami dip.

Have visited this restaurant many times and it is always so good. Wonderful vegetarian options! You must try the fried Brussel sprouts.
