We chose this restaurant because of its ranking by Trip Advisor. And it didn't disappoint. 4 of us, each ordered something different, we all raved. What do I recommend? Go back time after time and try everything.

Quaint alleyway place with outdoor seating. Scallops and pork loin were great. Prices moderate. Also right across from chocolate store.

Absolutely loved our lunch at this unique restaurant! A local favorite, as we were told to not miss having lunch here. We went for the fig salad and were not disappointed.

Whether you're hoping to enjoy the ambiance of our indoor dining room, our locally crafted wood bar top, or the fresh breezes of our covered outdoor patio - there is room for everyone. Our atmosphere is inviting for romantic evenings, cocktails with friends, and family gatherings. We pride ourselves on serving locally roasted coffee from The Brown Bean, and we offer several local brews on tap and by the bottle.
