A true gem. Perfect food. Great cozy atmosphere accompanied by the warm staff whom you see that cares about every customer and every dish. Don’t pass on the amazing fried ice cream and other deserts. Everything was simply fabulous.

We had made a reservation for a group of 7, one of which is in a wheelchair. Our reservation was honored, but there is no curb-cut in the sidewalk to the restaurant at the front of the building, and the inside is a bit crowded....More
