Friendly staff, Nice ambience,as close to authentic as you'll get - I really enjoy the jazz nights and their cocktails. Servers can get overwhelmed at times by the volume of people but it's all done with a smile- so happy that this is in Yelm

This is a good little pizza joint. The pizza is thin crust and was cooked to perfection. The patio is nice although it faces the parking lot. We would definitely eat here again if we're in Yelm.
