The atmosphere is like a small town shop. They serve classic Czech dishes with a lot of selection. The meat shop looked great. Great place to go for lunch.

My husband and I visited based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. Our food was fantastic! I ordered the Diana Sandwich and my husband ordered the schnitzel; both were delicious.

This Czech inspired restaurant had great flavors and adorable prices. I was amazed how they smoked everything in-house and had a lot of choices. I would recommend this place to everyone.
