This is a cracking wee place to stop in and get a drink and something to eat. The drinks are reasonably priced and the food was really good, big portions and tasty. Nice place to sit and relax away from the crowds and noises outside.

We spotted this place since we were trying to find something close to a theater we were going to. The prices are average for NYC. The food was good but nothing super special. Probably wouldn't make it a go to but it was good.
