Food is quite good. Slightly on the higher side. Vegetarian friendly. They do have a cat and dog walking around. Place can be a little dark and quite quiet. Nice place to chill from a hot afternoon

We waited for an hour for our burgers because there were quite full on the day we came. Luckily the food was excellent! All burgers that we ordered tasted very delicious, fresh, tender and juicy!
