Stumbled across this place because it didn't populate to nearby restaurants, on things to do. Very weird. Anyway, I had a grand time and a delicious lunch. Staff was excellent and the dining area was very comfortable. Homemade soup was fantastic.

We had a lovely meal outside as the weather was great. The service was super. The lady manager/owner sat down with us to take our order and chatted with us. Beautifully informal and very welcoming. Can't wait to go back there.
