Thanks Patty! You are right, the menu may well change again since it often does, but our homemade tomato soup is so well received and is a bit of a mainstay. A 'comfort food' for sure. Kathy

I'm afraid we are not blessed with a patio! Just to know - dogs are not legally allowed where food is served in Vancouver unfortunately. (Unless a licensed assistance dog).
