Was not impressed with the food or service do not waste your time and money at this place. Food is way to high for what you get so beware.

Our dinners we were pleased with but their appetisizers were not that great. This was our first time here and need to go back and try it again. The live music was great

Parking in Back. Easy to miss down a little alley. Nicely decorated and clean. The clam salmon chowder was thick and good. The waitress informative. Watched the chef prepare food by the kitchen. Medium priced. Wolesome.

Great pulled pork wrap. Also very tasty crab wrap. Disappointed that apple juice was not organic. Defensively worded menu. Lighten up guys. Your food is delicious!

This is a charming little café attached to a wine bar, so not only was our food exceptional, but the wine was also a great partner for it. The kitchen is open so it is easy to thank the chefs personally.
