I really enjoyed the freshness of the food and the relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I like the décor, it's comfortable with pillows for the bench seats. It is a fun place to bring friends and family.

I had the appetizer with my wife that consisted of sauteed brussel sprouts. Delicious but just get half order if you order a meal. Way too much. We had sandwiches and they were big and great.

Small but great food. Be sure to check out their grilled cheese with soup combo. Grilled cheese is made with fresh caprese mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil, grilled on sourdough with Parmesan cheese. Delightful!

Great little restaurant. Many menu items of American cuisine. They source their food locally. Just a great way to do business. Treat yourself to a fine meal.

I really enjoyed the selection of food. However, even though I like spicy food, the pasta was over spiced for how spicy the salmon was. At breakfast, the pancakes were great.

Its a very small place 7 seats at the bar and maybe 15 tables so, you could probably rent the restaurant out depending on the size of your party.
