I ate here three times over the last 2 years. Although I am a meat eater, the vegetarian fare was outstanding. Prepared well enough to attract foodies. Sadly, it wasn't able to survive until the streetcar was in service and business in general had picked...More

Stopped for lunch .... had the Gnocchi and daily special salad and sandwich. Not the most friendly or attentive service, but we were not ignored either. Very tasty selections but not huge portions and a bit on the pricy side.
