The two telltale signs (in my opinion) of a dirty restaurant are the menus and the washroom. If both of those are dirty, then chances are the whole place isn’t very clean. When we got there, we got handed these paper, ripped, food-stained menus. On...More

We ate lunch at this restaurant. The menu looked appealing and the surroundings looked very comfortable. They have an excellent out door deck as well as indoor seating. We were asked to wait about 10 minutes so that they could catch up. We actually waited...More

Clam chowder was good but very filling. The place is good for vegetarians as well. Nice sit down place for friends and family.

We like organic food, very tasty, without the "processed food" sauces. We also like serving sizes that we want to finish - not that we feel guilty leaving on the plate or taking home for left-overs that we may or may not eat. This cafe...More
