    Homemade salads were great as was everything we tried. We had the Cuban with pickled onions added, Rueben, chili and grilled cheese. Try the Thai cucumber salad it was magnificent, the Cuban was one of the best I’ve had. The owner even came by to chat and play with our pup.

    Great Service, Great Food

    The people here were extremely nice to us and our dog! Brought her water and came to pet her often. The food was also fresh and tastey. Would definitely go back!
