We planned on coming over here for dinner because we saw this place driving by the day before and we thought it was pretty.
The worst mistake ever!!! We were standing by the podium looking at the menu on the sidewalk wondering if is a self seating restaurant or you have to wait for a hostess.
No one ever came out and ask, the restaurant wasn't even busy. We decided to grab a sit inside since there was a lady at the entrance and servers around but nobody acknowledge us. It's like the 5 of us were invisible.
We grabbed a table and waited and that's literally it, no menus, no drinks offered no one ever came to the table we even tried to make eye contact with the 3 people that we saw working there and after 20 minutes we decided to leave, we told the lady begind the counter what happened but she just didn't care, no apologise no nothing.

Nice setting Good location right on Main Street. We stopped because we saw lots of locals on a nice sunny Sunday.
They we’re understaffed and result was really really slow service and cold food!
Should have read reviews prior!
Will give them another try as they tried but were just too busy for staff!

This is a solid choice. We had some enjoyable food, though nothing was extremely memorable. The wine list is a disgrace though, with only a single white wine on the menu.

Great food, good service, very busy restaurant for Sunday breakfast. Sangia's were delicious. Number 3 for 4 people was a great Mexican breakfast.
