Fodor's Review

A grocery store was transformed into Carole Norman's "ceramic café," a simple but elegant eatery with warm yellow walls, an open fireplace, and cozy dining areas. The most popular tables are in the front "shopwindow" area. Behind the restaurant is Carole's pottery workshop; if you like your dinner plate, you can buy it. The eclectic menu has plenty of light dishes in the lower price range, with vegetarian options a strong point. Choices range from mussel-and-leek chowder to baked brill with a tapenade mash or Tuscan bean and curly-kale cassoulet. There's always steak, too. A singing pianist in the big band tradition (Streisand, Sinatra) entertains on Friday nights.
