I had the appetizer with my wife that consisted of sauteed brussel sprouts. Delicious but just get half order if you order a meal. Way too much. We had sandwiches and they were big and great.

Small but great food. Be sure to check out their grilled cheese with soup combo. Grilled cheese is made with fresh caprese mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil, grilled on sourdough with Parmesan cheese. Delightful!

the food is always fresh and excellent, the service is great. We were there on Fathers Day and it was amazing how they handled the busy patrons. It has a hometown atmosphere and they really care about each and every customer.

Its a very small place 7 seats at the bar and maybe 15 tables so, you could probably rent the restaurant out depending on the size of your party.
