The menu is diverse but limited. The service was good and so was the food. It's a nice place to enjoy a quiet lunch by yourself or with the family.

I went there on a Tuesday when they had live music. I suggest you get there early if you want a seat. The menu is short and simple. I had a pizza and it was spectacular. I'd definitely go back again.

Cozy and cool place to go for delicious dessert and coffee. Mismatched couches, chairs and tables are everywhere. Dimly lit and great for a romantic night or catching up with friends in what feels like a living room. They have live jazz or entertainment some...More

I used to go here when I was younger, and while it's still the same eclectic atmosphere, it's still a trendy place to go. One of the few late night venues in the area, and the coffee drinks are quite delicious. I've been there more...More
