Went for lunch and ordered from the new brunch menu. The “KFC” chicken sandwich was one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had. Awesome flavours and tasted fresh. Different from the run of the mill brunch spot. Will go back for sure!

We went here for a family celebration and the service was great, they accommodated our group including our Labrador Retriever in the patio. While we were there late in the afternoon, the food was good and the service was cheerful.
