We had a quiet lunch on the second floor. Window table with a view. Perfect stop with delicious food. Hamburger and grilled Chicken sandwiches both were awesome. French fries were good also. Friendly attentive staff.

Sit with a street view and have great bub food. We found the haddock sandwich to be one of the best fish sandwiches of our lives. The home made fries were excellent.
