Excellent service, friendly staff, as we had an appointment to get to they made sure we were served promptly. The food was excellent, the pickerel wrap was super and the fries too. The veggie penne was also very good. Good sized portions, great value.

This restaurant is one of our favourites here. Very consistent food quality and always prepared fresh. It’s a smaller space but that lends itself to a great time. I hope that you enjoy it.

Quirky little place-fairly good menu. The vegetable wrap was good- soup was bland and not hot. Since it was our only experience here we can't compare to other visits. All in all it was okay.
