My coffee was cooked quickly. Relaxed atmosphere. Good location for breakfast. Lattes are served in small glasses, and cappuccinos are also in small cups, so I ordered coffee twice, but the coffee is good! Thank you!

Great family owned pub where everyone who works there really cares whether you enjoyed the food. Great pizza, burgers and a surprisingly delicious vegetarian salad with quinoa, broccoli, cauliflower, greens and a tasty dressing. Really enjoyed our meal!
