Great breakfast place. Really enjoyed the little twists that put into their dishes. For me that the reason to go out to eat ..... to get something that you don't make at home

Food is good, beer selection is always phenomenal, and decor is funky. On top of that, the staff is fantastic. Always feel at home when I'm here - be it weekend brunch, dinner with friends, or just a couple of drinks in the evening.

I visited with friends and ordered Tapas. Great selection of creative dishes, borrowing from more than one European country. Everything was tasty, especially the mushrooms, the goat cheese, and the arancini. There are many vegetarian options, and the server was attentive and helpful.

We had dinner this summer in the main dining room and it was very hot. No real A/C. That was a bit annoying considering that the food was good. Great lemon drops!
