I have been coming here for years and they still haven/t dealt with the issue of bugs. Door open in nice weather but flies everywhere. Once I was here in winter and found gnats circling my glass of wine. Very unappetizing. Definitely makes me wonder...More

Stopped by for a quick iced coffee. Money. Place was packed, lots of people getting food, would have gone more often during our stay if I knew it was so good!

Some of the coffee drinks can be hit or miss. Good selection of GF and Vegan food. Great sidewalk area and they have a bowl of water for the dogs.
