We were attracted by the option to bring our own bottle of wine. Delighted with the food, friendly service and ambience of this tiny and lovely restaurant. No corkage either and a delightful well stocked wine shop just a few doors along. Highly recommend!

The village is charming. We were there on an early May day that was overcast and chilly. The aroma at the door was enough to pull us inside and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff, excellent food.

Wonderful spot in downtown across from an old church and cemetery serving homemade pastries by the owner and lovely high tea. We would enjoy returning for dinner service in the future. Dog friendly if you ask.
