The Grind is a great place to eat. The meals are big and the prices are very fair. It was the middle of June too and the place was warm, the mood was light and the service was really great.

The Coffee shop was recommended to us as a restaurant as it also serves dinner. Unfortunately no atmosphare. We had pizza which turned out ok even so the Barbeque pizza was a bit spicy

Easy dining for a quick pizza. Family oriented for kids and space for kids to entertain themselves. Pizza quality was good and pricing was fair.
