Stopped in for a drink and the it looked so good we stayed a while. Nice mix of people, both working and as patrons... Not just a hipster hangout.

My husband and I were intrigued by the name of the restaurant and decided to stop by for lunch. We split a few appetizers, including the pork nachos, deviled eggs, and pierogis, and were happy with our choices. The service was quick and friendly.

It accommodates both. When we were leaving there was a couple sitting in the outside patio with twins about 2 years old and she had enough room for her double stroller and the kids were having a good time.
