Had a very nice lunch here. They serve kombucha! Layered nachos were outstanding. Kielbasa was tasty.

We stumbled upon this as not much else was open. They had excellent coffee (even soymilk and almond milk for non-dairy lattes) and drinks (local craft beer on tap). Happy hour is 4-6. There are music nights (see photo).

Lovely place, full of character and friendly staff. I drank many an IPA here (such an exciting discovery after way to much Gallo) while doing Spanish homework. Definitely recommend.
