Good location, sit outside in the park when it isn't raining. A beer and a wine, both average but not expensive. We didn't eat anything and the menu was limited. Worth a stop if you want a wee break from walking around.

Perfect stop to pick up a meal or just a snack. Great stop if you're staying at a hotel. They also have wine and beer.

I had the best black bean burger here. They make theiron own buns, super soft and so delicious. My husband had a cheese burger that almost turned this vegetarian back into a meatatarian.

By chance we dropped in on this informal place on Taylor Street in Portland. We were served an excellent burger, while we watched little children enjoy the water fountains on the square. The price was good and the entire environment was clean.

In between our tours we had lunch here. It was quick, and clean. The burger was tasty and the drinks were cold. What more could you ask for in the middle of a busy day.

A limited but great menu, fast and friendly vegetarian offerings, Nice outdoor tables. Good non alcoholic selection of beverages. Great after you have parked your car and have spent the rest of your time in stores and in the theater.
