Nothing overly memorable about the food. They had real maple syrup, though, which was a big plus. I'm not in a hurry to go back.

Hello! The best place to park is along 4th Avenue. On street parking is usually available around the neighborhood. During peak hours you might walk up to 2 blocks to get to the restaurant. Thank you!
