I have been to this restaurant several times and take visitors there whenever we are looking for a unique lunch location. Family owned. Friendly and efficient staff. Fairly priced. Great food. Have always left with a smile.

Went here for Easter brunch with the family. Tasty moderate plates for our meal and wonderful éclairs. Even had live music. I love supporting local businesses.
