Fabulous locally sourced produce, creative and delicious menu, a fine palate of wines, amazing local craft beers, and spectacular service. A place to frequent on the east side of Athens and a worthwhile special visit from anywhere in GA and beyond.

Crusty, delicious Panini bread made this Cuban sandwich one of the best I've had. They use stone ground mustard and banana peppers. I also had their special butternut squash pierogies Yum!
