Food was excellent as always - I had a superb, juicy French Dip on marbled rye roll, my wife had a ham and mushroom quiche, along with their signature tomato basil soup. We both had the strawberry rhubarb pie - just scrumptious. Really lovely atmosphere, like an old bookstore with brick walls, good acoustics, lively but easy to hold a conversation.
The food was spendy for what you're getting and the atmosphere wasn't anything special. I ordered the soup and sandwich. The soup was good, but the sandwich tasted like the ones you can buy at a gas station. They used the $.99 bread that's really gummy and soggy. I would'nt ever go back.
Something Out of the Ordinary!.
It's not only a catering service, but also a restaurant and coffee house now! Stopped in town to visit some friends and was taken here for a Friday lunch. It was a pleasant surprise!
Menus are somewhat limited, but they do change weekly. The food was very good. Try the homemade tomato basil soup. It was incredible. Make sure you save room for dessert. The "Better than Sex" chocolate cake came awfully close to its boast.
My drink, soup and sandwich, and dessert came to a little over eleven bucks. Perhaps a little more expensive than the chain restaurants like Applebee's and Friday's, but going to a place that has a little character like The VIP is well worth the extra pennies!
