Off the main drag by a block or so, but a total mistake for us to have tried. Walk in, no one there to wait on you because they're serving folks in the wine bar side of the restaurant. Finally, a young lady comes over, apologizes for not being prompt, and the apologizes again because their espresso machine is broken, so no cappuccino or other Italian coffees. Settled for an iced mocha, which was more like a DQ Moolatte. The place did not look clean inside, wastebasket behind coffee bar needed to be emptied. Young lady was trying hard but this first visit would probably not lead to a second.

This cozy wine bar has a great selection and it's a nice place to sit with friends. It's dark and quiet, although sometimes there is local music or open mic nights. You have to try the chocolate bars sold here -- they used to be made above the wine bar! I recommend the Beaufort Bar (dark chocolate and sea salt - yum!). One certain nights, there are food specials. The veggie pizzas are also delicious! In addition to the wine offerings, this is a great place to drop in for coffee or hot chocolate on a walk around Front Street.

We went here for a surprise engagement party...the entire night was fantastic. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. The food was yummy and very reasonable. The coffee was top notch. They had a live musician the night we were there and he was also very enjoyable. Worth a look if you're in the area.

We stopped in for wine and cheese one Friday afternoon. Our server/wine recommender, Dana, was wonderful. Personable, knowledgable, friendly - we will go back! The house-made pimento cheese was fabulous and we're taking some home. Highly recommended!
