So, from a service perspective, these guys should be top notch. They are more like untrusting bouncers who judge literally anyone who sits down. Obviously people can't stay without ordering, but these guys pass judgement before they even have a chance to look at a...More

My husband and I are still talking about their lemon gluten-free cakes. The jasmine tea was good and the band added a nice atmosphere to a hot afternoon. The gluten-free focaccia was also very good.
