“A Great Place to go After Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is a litlle bar in a cobblestone alley-a great place we found while wandering around Old Port after dinner. (My husband claims this as "his find"!) The young girl bartender was a real gem. She told us all about the homemade desserts. I had the chocolate carmel cake. She said it won awards in Portland and I can see why. It was delicious. She said that the carrot cake was the best she ever had. My husband had that and he agreed. She made me a chocolate martini- it was big and delicious. The bartender and my husband discussed the number of ports that there were on the shelf. My husband tired several and was impressed! This small dark bar is really worth a try.

“Great late night dessert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

A very out of the way tiny little cafe/bar. Excellent martinis and fabulous desserts. Three nights in a row! It's very quaint and a great atmosphere. Not to be missed.

“Must stop in for a night cap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Chocolate martini...need I say more? The service was excellent and drinks yummy! We also tried dessert and that too did not disappoint. It's a must see if staying in old port. Cozy atmosphere as well. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

“Hidden Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We walked right by it but eventually found it. Great drinks and the Frangelica dessert was heavenly. Very casual atmosphere and the servers are very personable. Would definately go back again.
