This restaurant serves healthy, fresh food in an eclectic but comfortable environment. The food is locally sourced & vegan options are always available. The staff is welcoming and knowledgeable. Perfect meal.

Oh it was the perfect day for this. Rainy. Stormy. So cozy inside. The martini was excellent. The mussels however were way too salty. I'd read a review of them saying the same, but I ordered them anyway. Silly me. The flavor of the broth...More
