Fantastic pizza for lunch. Recommend the Popeye and the Organic Beef! Murals on the walls were funny to read and seating was cosy.

Healthy, delicious food. Ordered a burrito and hash and greens here. Both were excellent! They also have a good selection of smoothies and coffee. Cozy, full of locals and overall nice vibe.

Ive been there a couple of times, and never disappointed me. Good coffee, good pizza and a wide selection of cabinet food. Slightly pricy, but its pretty remote and they have to make most of their money in one season i suppose.

Bold, interesting and stretching to a shady garden. Covers everything from snacks to interesting food combinations, taking in craft beer along the way.
