Cute little restaurant, very nice inside. Service was quick and effective. Food came out quicker than expected. Overall food was good, but lacking that wow factor to make it special. Good experience and would go back, but certainly nothing to write home about.

Food tasty. The soup tomato and coconut was excellent. Friendly and helpful staff with a lovely roaring fire.

Fireplace was lovely so a warm environment. We had 4-5 toddlers with us so there was no relaxing since the fireplace was unprotected and easy to trip over. A lot of meals were prompt and delicious. The menu about pulled pork doesn't actually say it's...More

They have a couple of fireplaces which is lovely in the winter to sit by and eat brunch. The staff are friendly, the prices are standard, and the food is delicious. A good spot for breakfast/brunch right next to the lake.
