What Customers Are Saying
I had lunch at your restaurant yesterday with a couple of friends. I usually order a Reuben Sandwich. I simply wanted to tell you that your Reuben is by far the best I’ve had. I brought half of it home and my husband and I just shared it. It’s absolutely scrumptious. I’ll certainly pass the word. Your desserts are beautiful also. Just for your information my friend had your cranberry quiche — also wonderful! Thanks for being a part of Toledo. ~ Diane G.
