The food was delicious and wine selection outstanding. We enjoyed a nice lunch sitting outside enjoying beautiful weather. The place was small so seating is can be tight, but worth going to. Clam chowder was outstanding!

We chose this restaurant for lunch while walking by. The atmosphere was fun, service great, food excellent. We shared Green Curry with Prawns and chowder. Chowder was tasty and curry was spiced just right. We do recommend the TreeHouse Cafe!

We came for lunch while visiting the area. The entire staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. Wine pours were very generous and the fresh pasta dishes were incredible. We will definitely return to this romantic spot!
