Quiet relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is welcoming & friendly. Local neighborhood patrons with lots of fin stories. Corned beef sandwich is to die for. Limited menu but worth a quick bite

Their sandwiches are locally known, but for no reason I can detect. It's real claim to fame is the absurdly early hour it starts pouring drinks.
