The atmosphere is fantastic. I've never been more pleased to eat in an establishment with a tree in the center. There were five of us and everyone was very pleased with the food choices. Our server Nico was also outstanding. Will recommend to all.

We were in town for the Art Fair and stopped in to eat before heading home. The food, service and atmosphere were spot on. Our waitress Lisa was super helpful in recommending dishes and in checking on us. We will be back
