Such a cute little spot. Great cocktails and fun menu. The tater tots are amazing and the bloody Mary's are a must! The best part is that you can buy them by the pitcher. A definite must when you're in SLO! Safe travels~

This is a busy place so be prepared to wait a little for a table. We had the chicken pot pies which were really great. The menu is very interesting and quite unusual. A good experience.
