I read the reviews on menupages while we were waiting to order which made me a bit apprehensive. Reviewers wrote about bad service and mediocre food, but I didn’t experience any of that. The waitress was friendly and overall pretty attentive. She took away our menus after we ordered our drinks without asking if we were getting food, but she quickly made up for it after I told her about ten minutes later. Joe raved about his Mediterranean burger. I loved my mojo chicken and green chutney. This may be my potential new hood, so if that’s the case, I’ll definitely be coming back.

Good place to get your cupcake fix. Cheap ($2.25) and just the right size– more than a biteful, but not enough to leave me feeling gross.

Cute place. I’m sure it would have been better had I’d been eating there, but instead I was starving and waiting to get my food to go so I could watch the World Cup Finals. I waited thirty minutes for this simple burger… A medium cooked patty, melted american cheese, whopper sauce (aka thousand island with chopped onions), bread, and that’s it. No tomato, no lettuce Just a simple burger and fries and thirty minutes of my life. Half the time and it would have been worth it and I would probably go back if I were in the area.

p.s. I hope this half eaten burger picture doesn’t gross you out. Sometimes I forget to take a picture until after I had a bite or two!
