Met family here halfway for all and enjoyed a first time visit and brunch. Had an assortment of dishes, burgers, sandwiches, and omelette. Food and service was good.

Quaint atmosphere, wonderful food, great staff. Try the mocha nutella cake and brushetta chicken. The different cocktails were good also. Very low key, never rushed but staff was there. Abby was told. Can T wait to return.

The Light Well is worth a visit. If I lived in the area, I would become 'my local.' Good food and drink, and a lively spot the evenings and on weekends.

Okay food. Did not like onion soup or the quiche. A place to drink rather than to eat. Did not like the ambiance

We had a fabulous casual dinner at the Light Well tonight. We started with black bean soup (yummy) and Mussels followed by an absolutely perfectly cooked burger and turkey/bacon/gouda sandwich.
