Had a very nice lunch. Food was tasty, service a little slow but very friendly. There was live music with a fiddler and a guitar player which was a very nice surprise. Would go back for sure.

I appreciated the fresh ingredients, homemade sauces, etc but the breakfast sandwich was very bland. The service was good, nice atmosphere albeit a little cluttered for me, but I suppose that's part of the appeal. It's definitely worth a visit, and I'd try it for...More
