We went here as a group of six. The food is freshly prepared, and you can tell they use quality ingredients. Everyone ordered something different, and I sampled a bit of everyone's. It was all so delicious. The service was not as great, but it wasn't awful. I just expect a bit more attention to drink refills and checking in... More

We've visited thus restaurant often when in New Buffalo fir dinner. On our last trip we deceived to try brunch. It was a disappointing experience. We waited 15 minutes to be seated at a table that was empty when we arrived. We sat at the table for at least another 5 minutes before a server arrived. She seemed annoyed that... More

Eat inside or... More

The menu is phenomenal everything is prepared to perfection. The daily specials are one to try too. I just had a Noodle bowl with shrimp and a wonderful amount of spicy heat which sent my taste buds into orbit around the culinary moon. You owe it to yourself to stop and visit if only for a appetizer and a drink.... More

Fantastic service. Lovely atmosphere. Selected a pizza with toppings of our choice as we needed a lighter supper. Everything was lovely and delicious.

We've been here several times, but this was the first time I enjoyed a bite at brunch time. I ate lightly, but the soup and salad combo was perfect. The house salad had pomegranate seeds and was simply delightful.

The menu is a bit limited for breakfast, but the choices are very good. The service is great. We has 2 different dishes with scrambled eggs, they were very good. This is not your average bacon & eggs restaurant. My only complaint was the bread, brioche sounds good, but toasted is a bit to hard.

We had the chimichurri sirloin for dinner - awesome choice. Perfectly cooked. We also had a brief lunch here. We shared the fish and chips platter. Really delicious, enough for two people.
