We had to wait awhile before we were seen to a table. The portions were smaller compared to general cafe brunch sizes. But other than that it was a nice vibe and would go back.

Great little spot. We both had the soft shell crab tacos which were delicious. Service was a little average and a bit slow.

It was a great place in a great location and the staff very welcoming. The food we ordered was delicious too! We were a bit disappointed when we weren’t able to have a cocktail as the bar person was on holidays as that was something we were looking forward to. We would love to come back another time
