They change the menu often, so I don't really have a favorite. But everything I've had here is always great! We love it...

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/14/2012

The food is sublime, especially brunch. Especially if it's nice out and you can sit outside. All the food is served on homemade ceramic dishes and the service is unbelievably friendly. I love going here and an afternoon touring the area is a day well spent. Very inexpensive, but be warned! They don't take credit cards. more

Expensive? You're crazy! 7/18/2008

Hands on is awesome. Wonderfully fresh food at a very reasonable price. Lunch starts at 11am and offers three meals that usually cost around $7. My work colleagues and I eat there regularly. It is truly a gem. The meals typically consist of an entree, bread and butter and soup or salad. More than enough to fill you up! Their creative desserts are also wonderful. Give this place a try, but don't tell too many people:) Pros: Fresh local food, friendly service, delicious! Cons: small and a bit hard to find more

Amazing imagination 11/3/2005

I have been eating at Hands on Cafe for years and have never been disappointed. The menu changes everyday so I am able to try something new on every visit. This leads to the only downside of this restaurant, if you have a favorite dish, it will take some time before you are able to have it again. Other than that, I love the homey atmosphere, the open kitchen, the friendly servers, and you cannot find better food! Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Warm Dining Room more

Great food, simple setting 5/7/2004

We have never been disappointed in our meal here. Usually only 3 things on the menu, but always great. Desserts have been a bit of a let down, but I think it is because they use a little less sugar than our tastebuds have grown used to. This is probably a good thing. Pros: FOOD more
