Eclectic, but limited, fresh food menu. Friendly waitstaff. Convenient parking. Excellent soups, salads and sandwiches. Drinkable Manhattans with 2 large black cherries to finish. Unless you are a regular, though, ordering can be a bit confusing for travellers. Nice atmosphere. Well-kept.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fare and unique menu choices. The food was expertly prepared and excellent. Fireplaces in each dining area made the rainy, cold weather disappear. You will not be disappointed!
