We stopped for a quick drink. They have a great selection of beer and the atmosphere is very eclectic. We didn't have a wait for a place to sit.

Loved this place. Small and busy. Great beer selection and food was great. I had Monk and Cheese and hubby had poutine. Heard there’s a whiskey bar downstairs which we didn’t know about. We will definitely be back and check that out too!!
