This place was amazing. All of our food was fantastic and the atmosphere is great. We finished it off with the milk and cookies for dessert and they were warm and delicious. If your in Denton you will not be disappointed stopping in!

This is a nicely appointed-place with a very cool setting. It is on the corner of the building with swing-out windows facing East, so the breeze is good at certain times of the year. I had a bison burger that was excellent.
