Our lunch at Nanny's was delicious. The homemade turkey soup was a meal in itself and the fish cakes were very flavourful. Prices are very reasonable and the ambience is very relaxing. Worth a visit.

The building is very unique with lots of history and offers a different kind of experience we were eager to try out. The restaurant, however, still has to iron out some wrinkles after ownership/management has changed. There is no liquor license (even though the sign...More
