If you are vegetarian or vegan, you will like this place. Bohemian style place and food offers a good list of delicious meal and beer/wine. Staff are polite and quick.

The food is excellent. There are great choices from spicy to mild. A nice mix of dishes for a reasonable price.

I'm a meat eater, but I love the Grit. They have a larger menu with plenty of good options and a changing specials board with good options as well. They have tasty food at a very good price and good desert as well.
