That's great to hear, thank so much for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon, either for take-out or in the restaurant. The planters will hopefully be showing some new colours as they continue to bloom throughout the season.

The casual atmosphere welcomes everyone, whether you are looking for a custom-made espresso drink and hearty breakfast to start your day, planning a lunch out with the girls, or want to catch the golf highlights over a beer and appies. During the summer months, the spacious patio offers spectacular views of the ninth green, and is the ideal place to hang out with friends and neighbours. We are proud to serve a variety of fresh appetizers, salads, burgers, and daily features, as well as a full wine list and drink menu.
