    Breakfast is the best food served here. If you do go for lunch or dinner, try the cabbage soup or the chili. Chicken picata was good and included soup and salad for $13.

    The new menu has broken my heart. My favorite dishes are gone. Hopefully, they will put chili mac back on the menu. Vet disappointing.

    For starters the food is very good! The service on the other hand, we'll the server was not pleasant, didn't really know the menu, and had to come back to the table 4 times. Learn the menu and smile.

    The breakfast sandwiches are giant and cons with home fries. Split the croissant breakfast sandwich. It's yummy!

    Great service, but it can't make up for the bad food, unfortunately. :/ We really wanted to like this place, but it made our stomachs sick after our experience.

    There's no Wi-Fi here, bit if you sit close to the street intersection, you can pick up an open "linksys" network and you don't need a wifi password for it.

    The GOLD STANDARD of Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. When I lived in Lakeview East, I would get the chicken fettuccine all the time. Don't forget to ask for bread if you do carry out.
