My husband and I both had the grilled veggie sandwich with the rice salad. Both were amazingly delicious. We had our huge dog with us and they set us up outside on the patio with a dog bowl. Wonderful service and great food.

Wonderful little full service restaurant with outside seating; perfect for lunch while shopping this small village. Also open for dinner although we only had lunch. Varied menu with great sandwiches, soups and daily specials. Full bar. Recommended.

What a great restaurant in Highlands! Sat at the bar and had a great bartender who knew the specials, the regular items and all the wines. Special tempura mahi mahi sandwich, a winner! Can't complain- reasonable prices, good efficient servers and service.
