We stopped by for lunch on a weekday and it was great. The service was fast and friendly. We both had the fresh fish sandwich of the day and it was delicious. It's a great little restaurant tucked in behind Merriman's.

I don't like pizza but their pizza special drew me in. Their arugula, onion, tomato pizza and super food salad was phenomenal and a great price! We also enjoyed their mushroom risotto seasoned with fresh herbs. The staff was also very friendly and cheerful.
