This is a small restaurant with a big menu variety. Food was very good. Atmosphere was even better, eclectic and charming. One of the handful of eateries open on Monday.

Although we had to wait for a table for Saturday lunch, the hostess offered to text us when it was ready, and we wandered down the street for a wine tasting first. They texted us and we got a table immediately. My mahi mahi sandwich...More

We ate here with our college student son during a recent visit. This is a very small restaurant, and there is nearly always a wait. They don't take reservations. You give them your name and cell phone number, and then walk around until your table...More
