This place is very small so the wait may be long. Not a lot on the menu. Food was ok. They dont serve water with ice. Beer and wine only. Closed 3-5 between lunch and dinner.

The Fountain Cafe is a great spot to chill and have a drink, get some good reliable food and have a chat. Lovely part of PT. We went often when we lived there.
