Art pieces were very interesting. The space and the ambiance is definitely inviting and comfortable. Great place for kids or dates. They have something for everyone. Plus they premier cool movies every week. Their selection of movies is very interesting and will broaden your palette.

It has amazing hand made beautiful items for purchase! They have items such as blown glass dishes, bowls, vases. They have clothing items that are hand made as well as cards and pottery too. It is definitely a place you want to see!
