The tables are nicely separated and surrounded by spare, modern decor. The endive salads, roast chicken and ice cream were delicious. The owners' choice of music was bizarre, and included the song "Radioactive" - hardly relaxing!

The venue is charming nestled in Skaneateles, New York. The food is outstanding as well as their wine. The owners focus on the freshest and local ingredients available. We have enjoyed Christmas Eve - Birthdays - just dinner at this wonderful dining experience.

Their Brunch begins on Mother's Day. I believe all of the menu items are ala carte so it depends on what your order. Everything for brunch is very tasty.
