On a pretty day, sit on their back patio and play a round of bocci ball. Make sure you try the coconut cake! Their coffee is one of the best cups in town. Everything on the menu is truly divine.

Best burger in Birmingham, hands down. And those truffle fries, the bomb! Paired with a good Rose and you are all set.
