Had about a 25 minute wait for a table, but it was worth it! Staff is very friendly and efficient. Food quality and proportion is excellent for the money! Understand why the locals wait to eat here !

Fairly typical american cafe style food that is well cooked, well prepared and generously proportioned. Bar atmosphere, some slots make it a slightly different casual dining experience.
