This is a nice resto on the 2nd. floor in downtown Galena. Historical building. Friendly service and good food for honest buck! Parking in street. No wifi. Recommended.

Stopped by for a light lunch while shopping on Main Street. Quaint, shabby chic ambiance. Enjoyed the garden vegetable soup and crab Louis special. It was worth the walk up the stairs.
