Great food, and we like watching the planes come and go. They have good spaghetti, and wonderful apple strudel.

Really nice food, good choice for all types and local beer. It was nice to get away from the airport and enjoy food close by without feeling you are at the airport!

Dear SFtraveler4303, thank you very much for visiting our restaurant.

Nice little eatery, cozy with a view of the low flying planes. I had eggs on toast and a cup of earl grey. Didn't miss home a bit. Service was wonderful too.
