The location is a little hard to find, but you walk right into an atmosphere like your mother's kitchen. The cook is self taught, but he has earned his credentials with his innovative menu and delicious food.

Don't let the rickety ramp fool you, the doorway isn't wide enough and they can't or won't open the other panel. Civil rights, anyone?

Fresh food . Great tea . A little pricey for lunch, but close to the hospitals and downtown district. Love the BLT!

Served with tomato basil soup, it is a great lunch. My wife loves this little place that serves simply good food. Small, friendly, and interesting. Because of close proximity to the hospital and doctor's offices, large takeout business.
