    Pretty much a nice diner, heavily influenced by 70s style health cuisine

    I like this quirky restaurant, but for all the staff running around, it took some effort on my part to keep my water glass from staying empty.

    Try the SATAN eggs. Seriously can't do soy, this is a good alt for carnivores, delicious vegetarian food.

    Fresh food (burgers are da bomb!!!), good service, moderately expensive when you order drinks (spiced apple cider!) and dessert (key lime pie!)!

    Service was terrible...2 of our four dishes were wrong and we got no real apology or a reduction of the bill. We will not be eating here again.

    Note the customized pizzas on last page of menu. They're perfect size for one person and various combos I've had have all been terrific. Service here has always been great, by the way.
