The "eclectic" decor and furnishings may have you turning around before you even take a seat. But don't. The food is really good. The angus burger was phenomenal. The desserts looked yummy, too.

The restaurant is small and nothing special but the soup was delicious. I got the corn chowder, green chile pork stew and chicken stew were also very good. Service was good and we had enough scones left over to take home.
