Large variety of foods, accommodating gluten free, vegetarian, etc. Servers very nice about substitutions. The bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado sandwich is terrific. The greek salad is also excellent.

High above the city you find this wonderful cafe with an adjacent antiques store. Excellent and well priced casual food--sandwiches, pizzas, soups, salads, etc. There is a full bar. I love to bring visitors here. Always fun.

I don't live very far from the Vista Cafe. It is such a great place to meet with family and friends. Good salads and pastas. They usually can find a table for you even if it snowing.
