    Great for brunch. The monkey bread and build-your-own Bloody Mary are non-negotiable.

    Boozy brunch and I had the huevos rancheros. They bring you champagne and juice in little mason jars for the table

    The Thanksgiving Dinner was so good. Tasted similar to what mom makes! Mashed potatoes were awesome, as were the onion rings.

    Awesome comfort food at this retro style diner. Matzoh ball soup is solid as well as the ALT sandwich. Chicken and waffles is a big item and the chocolate cake and milk is decadent.

    The chicken and waffles are yummy. Put some syrup on the waffles then take a bite with chicken and the gravy. Super fantastic!

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup is the way to go, especially on a cold day :)

    Waitress is nice, music is catchy, but too loud whilst eating. Turkey club not my favorite, but good proportion, and pulled pork was just okay. hipster spot w/heavier price tag due to the location.

    Felicia Maisey · October 5, 2013
  • Maxim S.

    Exceptional service. Friendly staff. Good food for a quick bite to eat. Recommended!

    Try the Duncan Hines Chocolate Cake - Nice touch: a glass of milk comes with the chocolate cake.

    Sandra Foyt · June 29, 2013

    Try the Jamba - Spicy stew with shrimp, chicken, and Tasso ham on a bed of rice.

    Sandra Foyt · June 28, 2013

    Try the Chicken Pot Pie - Chicken and vegetables in a cream sauce, baked with a puff pastry crust.
