AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Cuisine/Specialty): A battalion of incredible desserts and breads assault your senses as you try to decide what to eat. Surrender, just this once, to the sinful sweets.
Known locally for hearty breakfasts and incredible breads, this restaurant offers meals with a Middle Eastern flair, as well as American favorites such as beef stroganoff, pasta dishes and a long list of specialty sandwiches and fresh pastries. My personal favorite is the shrimp curry soup, which is rich, robust with fresh flavor and not overwhelmed by the underlying shrimp base. Unfortunately, the soup only appears as a special and isn't on the daily menu. There are loads of full entrées and specialty sandwiches on the menu as well, but I would strongly suggest you stick with the well-prepared Mediterranean fare. If the small parking lot is full, don't despair. There is plenty of parking around back.
