Smallish menu but still something for everyone. My wife had fish of the day served on linguini and I had the steak, both beautifully prepared. Good wine list and great ranges of local craft beers. Helpful and friendly staff.

Great service and very friendly. We had a nice open sandwich brunch with a flat white each. Good value and good quality food. Nice music and atmosphere and will definitely come again.
