I'm a vegetarian so I really enjoyed the Laughing Buddha. There was plenty of unique food to choose from that was meat free. The list of beer was very impressive as well. We had to order a few times in order to find a beer they had in stock, however. So in the end the size of the beer list... More

There is a great selection of beer on paper, but often they don't have what you're ordering! The food is really very good. The service though, is absolutely horrible. I keep going back to this place because the food is sooo good, but have NEVER had good service. I have no idea if it's the kitchen who can't get the... More

I went here for lunch and I wasn't disappointed. The homemade hummus is awesome. I had the fiery feta... wow. I also had a chickpea salad which was also awesome. The staff are great, really friendly. I which I lived closer so that I could go back and try more things and get more of that hummus. Hopefully work will... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and it was fantastic. We originally booked "Tommy's Not Here" but then was told that they do not have high chair seating for toddlers... so we had to scrap that idea! The hostess was wonderfully warm and receptive. We sat on the far side right by the open - garage door style window. Started with... More

Love the food here. The Chickenwich and the Fatoush salad is great! Their beer selection is good, and they support our local brewery! Love the atmosphere. It's a great place to have a good meal.

Love the restaurant because of their beautiful patio (best one in Sudbury, I think!) and the food, but their service is terrible. (On more than one occasion I've had to wait for a long time to be served. The more you drink, the more they like you, it seems.) Early in May, it took them 25 minutes before they gave... More
