Was in the area. And was enjoyable. Quiet lunch with my wife. Great pizza and different foods to choose from. Pleasant staff and clean restrooms to boot.

They have a great drink menu for Sunday Brunch. I ordered the chicken eggs benedict and it was wonderful. It's a bit pricey and the staff isn't very attentive or friendly

After visiting the Bazaar, Bazaar in Hampton, my friends and I stumble upon this gem of a place. It was amazing! It's a cozy long restaurant with a nice bar. I ordered pizza and it was delicious! But we all had to try their famous tater tots made onsite. Little blocks of potatoes and so delicious!!!!!!!
