I have eaten at this restaurant several times, order something different and am never disappointed. If you like unique pizzas and salads, collards and tuna bites, you'll love this place. The service is descent and and the ambiance is casual.

They have a great drink menu for Sunday Brunch. I ordered the chicken eggs benedict and it was wonderful. It's a bit pricey and the staff isn't very attentive or friendly
