Great food

Great food loud inside the restront. They said they are moving to a larger place so it should get better. We made reservations and walked right in and sat down. Service was great.

Pull up into a parking space and walk into this artsy place that has food and extremely interesting, out of the ordinary shops. I had my first coffee made with hot peppers there .

there was an assortment of music and singers, a choice of restaurants if you wanted something to eat or drink and the people had great conversation for a wonderful summer evening out. you could speak with the musicians because they were sitting right there with you! how great is that!

If you want to see an older building that has been transformed into shops, artist workshops, offices, stores etc. this is the place to go. Lots of fun things to see and do here.

We love to go to the dark horse for coffee, they have the best breakfast burritos with home made salsa and they welcome our Lhasa Apso, Sable with open arms, they always have a treat ready for her!

Being close to the Memorial Art Gallery, you'd do well to grab lunch here before or after your visit seeing as the Gallery doesn't have a cafe at present. Gatehouse, Lento are high on my list, then Salena, which is less expensive. It's a cool vibe.

Never disappointing, Village Gate offers a vast array of venues and happenings to get anyone with any interest out of the house. Perfect weekend for the fair as the rain would not cease!

The Good; nice artsy place to hang out. The Bad; not for everyone, kinda NYCish so may not be for the country bumpkin. The Ugly; the freaks come out at night so you better like that sort of thing.
