Pizza, burgers, sandwiches, baguettes and a lively crowd scene is what you get here. Service is prompt and efficient and the menu offerings are perfect for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. The pizzas are interesting with somewhat unique flavors. Well worth doing.

Very comfortable booths surrounded by old photos of the area. There are tv's on but we were able to ignore them. My husband got the fish & chips and I got the salmon which was excellent. Service was good.
