Tried this place on a whim on Sunday at lunch. To start, it's kind of tiny. Three 4-person booths, 10 counter seats and two outside small round tables. It was busy when we were there with only one staffer handling bussing, serving, setup, and some...More

Very small space--3 or 4 booths, 8 cafe/bar stools, and 3-4 two person tables out front. Most cooking is done right behind counter in view of everyone. Most cooking is done on a griddle and is DELICIOUS! The wait staff was great and going as...More
