Had the most pleasant brunch: Service was friendly and attentive, food was tasty, portions are significant. Home-made hash is very tasty, and we will definitely eat here again.

What a great place we stumbled on today for lunch. We had a”Diesel” and a Falafel Attraction. Both were delicious and filling. We each brought half home. The service and suggestions were very good too. Cute outside patio with funky, eclectic pieces and gardens.

I stumbled on this place through Apple maps. It has a great diverse menu - largely "American" but some creative fusion dishes - wide variety - both healthy and sinful. Good local beers on tap. Small, quirky, cozy in an old house. Nice staff. Good...More
