We were told this place was a fav of the locals. We ordered the vegetarian appetizer and sage tea. Both were quite good. The Domas were excellent.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
