  2. Joe says:

    Just what Rockford needed, a real-live downtown food spot with local talent and fresh food. Love this!!!

  3. Dave says:

    OMG! EVERYTHING is FABULOUS here! I haven’t had ANYTHING that wasn’t top-notch. The food is very fresh, innovative and mostly healthy. I don’t even like Mac N Cheese and was persuaded to try my date’s – and I loved it. She hates corned beef mush and I made her try mine and SHE loved it. She said “So that’s what corned beef mush is SUPPOSED to taste like.” It was not mushy, fresh and had peppers and onions. Very interesting takes on foods here. The cole slaw has multiple vegetables and is great. The baked goods are to die for. What’s not to love?
