I always bring friends from out of town here. Great atmosphere. Great food. Plenty of parking despite a previous post by someone else. Parking is available in the back, the other side against the building and across the street at their Bakery.

It was a must that I eat here while on my short visit home. This is the best pizza and bread I have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Now I have never had a pea pizza before but I am now converted. Had a lot of pizzas before but never thought of peas as a suitable topping but it really works. This tavern was pretty busy when we visited but food was good...More
