This bar is hip but down to earth, with very attentive and friendly waiting staff. Lovely selection of cocktails and IPA beer. I tried the Pulled Pork burger it was delicious, and a massive portion. Looking forward to returning.

Cute, good food, great vibe! We’ve been a few times & it’s always busy, so keep that in mind- service takes a bit, but it’s worth it! Upgrade to the tots!

Just delicious!!! The chicken and waffle with the sausage pour over is a must. The maple bacon was perfect. I was disappointed that the menu was so limited for brunch but nonetheless the food was great! The mintmosa was delicious too!
