Honestly great food in a friendly atmosphere. The old side and the new side have different ambiance, both cool. First choice for everything from weekend brunch to summer sidewalk dinner and drinks. Down to earth, not fancy, but you better make reservations before you head...More

Love their food and especially love going there in the summer, when the outdoor tables are set up. No better place in town to enjoy a wonderful lunch with a cold beer.

A fairly average meal with pleasant service. We had a burger which was good and a plate of stodgy, overcooked chicken Parmesan pasta. Forgot to bring our drinks order. Just ok but we wouldn’t return.
