Food atmosphere and good food. I like their "We" lunch which is a half sandwich and small salad. It's perfect for a quick lunch. Excellent sandwiches. I love their Reuben Sandwich. Check out The Local.

The quinoa salad was average and the Irish coffee drink was okay. It is noisy like any pub and the beer is good. Service is prompt and excellent
