Always great to visit! Wonderful place to relax and spend a few hours personal time. Enjoyed "Victorian Radicals", very well curated exhibit! Especially nice when able to make my visit on First Friday of the month when no entrance fee for seniors and special exhibit entrance is 1/2 price!!

I love the seasonal soups they provide. Also taste does catering for weddings and events. They provide excellent quality and quantity control.
