We stopped at the Cave A' Vin for a glass of wine. The staff was very friendly and helpful in selecting our wine. They have a tapas menu and desserts although we didn't eat there. I would like to return and try the food.

I've visited Cave A' Vin several times to meet up with friends on weeknights before 10 PM. It's always been fairly quiet, with a nice wine list and a knowledgeable bartender/server. The menu is very short, focusing more on snacks/sandwiches than full meals. There are...More
