The food was good. The problem was was that there was only one waitress taking orders. She talked with tables making her very slow. She never brought out the food, the other lady did. I'm giving my tip to the other lady.

Restaurant is in a converted house with limited parking. Very eclectic decorations and furnishings with a dozen or so tables. Food was good and at a fair price for the size of portions. We both ordered salads, one taco and one chicken. No complaints.

Small diner with quality home-style food, they offer a good selection of various hot sauces and also have fresh baked homemade breads. Breakfast is very enjoyable and portion sizes are more than necessary
