This is our friends favorite place. It has a cozy feel even though it is bigger than it appears to be. The brunch crowd was busy and noisy but that's okay. Convivial atmosphere. The bread was great (from Bread on the Oaks) and my salade...More

No, we only have one dining room and we only seat 75. Nothing private unless you buy out the restaurant or have a private party on a Monday or Tuesday when we are closed.
