The atmosphere here is second to none on a beautiful day! Sit outside, enjoy the wonderful views, and eat some fresh/ & local food. The staff has really high turnover for some reason - so there are always new employees. But the salads and soups...More

The food at the cafe is outstanding and was an unexpected bonus to a nice wine tasting. The staff was friendly and informative about the wines that were on the tasting menu. Oh, the wine was pretty good as well.

Ok, they have food at the café but you'll pay for it and it's very basic. I felt the food was not a good value. I like the wines and the place is neat to sit at outside in the summer and drink wine. Small...More
