“Every time we eat at Traditions, we wonder why we don't eat there more often! Not only is the food of the highest quality, the atmosphere is very friendly. Plus, we know everything is fixed to the very highest standards. Prices are fair, or inexpensive. I learn about music, current events, and other issues that are of interest to me whenever I am there.”

“Oh My. The Chai is a little piece of Heaven here. When you walk in you can smell the wonderful aroma of the Chai spices being prepared for the most delicious beverage you can have. My husband had the vegan enchiladas too and truly enjoyed them. I love to shop here for gifts too. This place is an Olympian treasure.”
