We struggled to find somewhere to eat in a busy Fredericton weekend. The staff at 540 went out of their way to find a table for us. Good food and service. Nice steak and haddock dishes.

Stopped by for lunch and enjoyed it very much, I had a local IPA and the spicy chicken sandwich with pickled veg, (very tasty), and my SO enjoyed the fish tacos and a glass of red. Sunny patio, quick friendly service...what's not to like!
