We came here after many locals recommended it as a second option behind where we wanted to go, The Lemon Tree which was closed. It's a big space that does not have much ambiance. But the staff was very friendly. They were welcoming to children...More

No ambience and the owner switched on all the bright lights which made it even worse! Door must be kept open which causes the place to be cold and unpleasant. Toilets are terrible with no toilet paper in the mens' toilet and only 1 roll...More

The Grind is a great place to eat. The meals are big and the prices are very fair. It was the middle of June too and the place was warm, the mood was light and the service was really great.

The Coffee shop was recommended to us as a restaurant as it also serves dinner. Unfortunately no atmosphare. We had pizza which turned out ok even so the Barbeque pizza was a bit spicy

Easy dining for a quick pizza. Family oriented for kids and space for kids to entertain themselves. Pizza quality was good and pricing was fair.

I am sure the food will offer a different experience. The review was more around the ambiance of the place, which was not that good. They do seem to try to do too many things, which may work economically, but does not work... More
