Three of us had excellent beers and first rate sandwiches (cheese burger, chorizo burger and pulled pork). Beautiful fresh curds and potato chips made a great little appetisers. We had really terrific, friendly service too. We all agreed it was a brilliant little lunch spot.

Large beer selection but they do not brew their own beers. Nice varied menu with lots of different selections. Small casual place, good food and service. In the old Geneva theatre building.
