    So amazing! This place is a diamond in the rough. Don't pass it by! If you like Mediterranean and/or Middle Eastern food, this should be your next destination! The chef at Basha Cuisine is a classically trained Egyptian chef who takes great pride in his creations. Every single ingredient that made up my meal was top-notch from the hummus to the "basha seasoned" chicken with peppers and rice. The dish concepts are so simple and the food is not at all expensive, but the presentation of the food mixed with the delicate spices and the classy but casual atmosphere and friendly service brought everything together for a great experience.

  • Puppy's Playpen is a fantastic place to take your beloved canine friends! Updated vet information prior to enrollment is required. They offer boarding, daycare, and grooming. Based on your dog's size, length of stay, and specific needs, prices for boarding, daycare, and grooming vary. Typically, a single day of boarding ranges from $35 to $40. Daycare runs from $12 to $22. You should call for grooming prices. In my experience with my short-haired mix, the grooming cost is reasonable!

    This is "the" doggie daycare. I have taken my dog, Gus, here since February and he has just fallen in love with the place! What makes this place special is the extensive amenities offered for your pooch. I always sign up for texting and videos of Gus' daycare shenanigans straight to my phone! Also, Puppy's is stocked with a wide variety of fashion items, toys, treats, and food to choose from. Every now and then, I make sure to pick up a package of fresh marrow bones and perhaps a new toy.

    Bringing my pooch to Puppy's Playpen has always left me at ease on my busy days at work. I always feel confident Gus is happy, healthy and well taken care of so I can tackle my day!
