This restaurant/cafe is a fresh change from the other downtown restaurants.  The cafe itself is set up just like one of the big chains.  When you enter, you move all the way to the back of the cafe to place and pay for your order.  Then a self service drink station stands between you and the self seating arrangement.  Orders are generally out of the kitchen quick and delivered to your table via a pre-selected number issued by your order taker.  On the menu is Panini Sandwiches served with chips and a pickle (or you can opt for the daily featured item in lieu of the chips).  All items are made fresh.  The Secret Recipe entrees are served on modern dishes and you can custom order a salad from the salad chef.  Overall a great experience is to be had, servings are light for bigger appetites.  The restaurant bills it's hours as sun up to sun down and is generally open later for Market Square festivities.
