Stopped at this compact restaurant and was bowled over by the extensive brunch and luncheon menus. Very ambitious even for a large restaurant. I had difficulty choosing from among the delicious dishes but finally chose the frittata with ricotta, spinach and Italian sausage. We ordered a side of the home fries. Our frittatas were served with a cut of the... More

I went there Sunday for the first time. I can said I never though that the food can be so good and tasty. And I am no kidding about the ➡️ menu. If you are a fan of Elvis Presley go straight to the bathroom, look like a secret room. 😁

I did not quite understand what they meant at the time, but apparently they put all of the ingredients for your sea food supper into a mini cast iron wok like pan the subject it to searing heat in an oven for a very short time. The result is astonishingly brilliant seafood - chowders and clam bakes. I would go... More

This is a small relaxed cafe. In the warmer months there is outside seating which creates more space for additional tables. The food is well prepared with unusual combinations that light up the taste buds. The servings are generous and the wait staff is both friendly and well informed about menu items. For a little adventurous eating and a nice... More

This was my second visit and I was left with the same impression so I feel my opinion has validity. The food is good but not worth the trouble to get it. Unless you eat at unusual hours you will have a wait. This wouldn't be so bad if there was a good place to wait which there isn't.I like... More

The food here is largely locally sourced. There are many options for the vegetarian or vegan as well as for the gluten free person. Foods you would never have thought of to put together. And there is nothing pretentious about it. You can feel comfortable in jeans and a sweater or dressed up. But, you need reservations. The tables are... More
