This is one of my go-to restaurants whenever I'm in Brighton. I love their food! Lunch serves sandwiches, while dinner serves entrees. There's a little bit of everything. Ingredients are fresh. I'm always satisfied when I eat here!

Very quaint and out of the ordinary. Not the same old menu. The food is excellent, the staff is great...they support local charities and artists. They only sell Michigan beer and even the soft drinks aren't the same run of the mill. Love this place...A+++
