Pub style cafe, limited menu with a few tables. Food was good but small portions. Had the stake sandwich which was ok. Talked to another couple who said the pasta was good and homemade.

Great tomato soup. Very good portobello mushroom sandwich. Only a 3.5 for the chicken quesadilla. Tasty but inconsistent filling. Good, friendly service.
