I thought this new restaurant offering was yummy and unique. I highly recommend you check it out! I was greeted warmly by the host who told me it would be a 10 minute wait. Not to worry there were plenty of seats at the bar as I waited for my friend. Soon enough we were seated and enjoyed a fantastic meal. My friend and I both ordered the wine- no complaints there. We shared the Poutine and the pretzel and beer cheese dip- both a must! My friend got the bison burger and although I dont eat meat it must have been good since this was his 2nd visit there. I enjoyed my grilled cheese sandwich although it was nothing to do backflips over. What REALLY impressed us was the watermelon basil salad--OMG. Fantastic! We ended with dessert and shared the bananas foster pudding and doughnuts. Both were good I prefer the banana dessert though. Coffee was good but a little weak and I suggest the coffee come at the same time as dessert, not after. Overall really awesome restaurant. Staff is fantastic! :-). Prices are very reasonable.
