We stopped in after visiting nearby museums. The burger was yummy. The veggie quesadilla was very fresh and even better than we expected. Would go back when in the area.

Stumbled into this place accidentally but it was a really great lunch. The veggie burger was AWESOME, the beer selection was great, and it was a fun, cool vibe. Lots of young people and families so it was noisy in a good way.
