I stumbled upon this place traveling southern Utah with friends. It was getting late and every place we passed was closed for the winter. Thankfully we came across the cafe which was very inviting from the outside. The ambiance was very nice and quaint with...More

We ate here twice, as many places had already closed for the season. It was very busy, so it's best to make a reservation so you're not disappointed. The service here varied....one night it was great, the next night it was average. The food overall...More

Went here with a group of ten while on a photo tour. Arrived around 630 pm, with a reservation and were seated promptly. The place has lots of unique and interesting artwork on the walls. I had their standard margarita which was very good and...More

not a cheap spot, but you won't break the bank. Heck, if I can afford it, who can't? bottom line: art. on a plate.
