The restaurant was very pleasant! The building is a log cabin kinda place which is nice and fun to see. The food was excellent. The soup was great and the Caesar salad were both excellent. Caesar salad was quite different than anything I’ve had before...More

Interesting little restaurant - stopped for lunch. I had the Falafel wrap - you don't often see falafel on the menu! It was good. Ate outside on the patio (downstairs), but unfortunately our dog was not allowed even there - so I would say not...More
