    Great friendly service. If you are a fan of Cafe Lulu in Bay View, give this place a try if you are in the neighborhood. Week night drink specials. Lobster Quesadilla was awesome (on special-pictured)

    I'm not officially a burger aficionado, but I have enjoyed many a burger; and at the well known places everyone raves about. I also rave about those places, but the burger here tops them all!

    The Tuscan Melt(with ALL the options) is AWE-some. Can't decide on the chips n blue or Asian Slaw...go halfsies n do both! And they have Sweet Potatoe fries too:) Decisions....

    Had the east Indian curry flatbread pizza - super good. Have bells two hearted on tap and a fantastic spin on a gin and tonic called the j61. Great place

    For a Sunday brunch I suggest you start off with the almond French toast as your table appetizer and then enjoy the rest of your meal because it is the best.

    Our server was fantastic and the atmosphere was hipster/progressive. The food options have a wide range of prices and the menu was unique and green

    The Moroccan Eggplant is an excellent choice. And if you can, try the Asia Slaw. You can't go wrong with it.

    Nice place. They had a nice carmenere.However, if you order the tuna and ask for the chef's recommendation on doneness, it will come out medium (which is overcooked for me).

    Food was really good. Don't go in too late in the evening - waited forever AFTER we were seated to just get water. Server even told us he wanted to leave...awkward
