We love to go here and split a bottle of wine and people/ dog watch. You must go next door to the cheese bar and get some meat and cheese. Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable about wine.

This is a fun little place to come and have some wine and they have little cheese plates to choose from as well. It's open street view is fun for people watching.

We went here on the advice of friends who thought we should experience it. It's noisy, but fun. There were at least two bachelorette parties present, each trying to be louder than the other. The wine is a good value and the cheese was excellent....More
