The food is not bad and price is reasonable. The white/red wine for happy hour is only $9.00 and normal price is $11.50 which is still alright. Overall experience was good and will consider to come back here again.

Quiet and quaint restaurant, perfect for intimate dates or a cozy family or friends gathering (even on a weekend)! Service was good and the food was not bad as well. Prices are comparable to more popular cafes or slightly cheaper. Plus point for all day...More
