Ordered two sandwiches and the homemade hummus with chips. No complaints about sandwiches which were alright. But man the homemade hummus had no flavor whatsoever. I could eat chalk that would have more flavor than this so called hummus.

We came for an evening band. Gets pretty packed at night. They have an outside area to relax. It was a great relaxing date night!

This is a good place to eat lunch with live music on occasion. The menu is limited, but it's pretty tasty. I had the Italian sandwich today. It's probably my favorite. We like sitting out on the patio- it's almost like being in your own...More
