    Love this place, but charging an extra $1.50 for ice when ordering a single malt is weak.

    Brunch? Get an order of the pancakes. I don't really like pancakes but these slices of heaven are not your average pancakes. I got the banana & choc. So good. You can thank me later. You're welcome!

    the avocado soup is pretty tangy, but my wife enjoyed it. if you're looking for something smooth and creamy though it probably has too much acid for you.

    Smoked salmon and pancakes were great. Not enough fruits on pancakes. Burgers were really sad. Don't order burgers. They were tasteless.

    The beer list is fairly extensive. Nice rotation on both draught and bottle. You will find something to compliment your meal.

    Service is slow. Food is hit or miss. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, it's bad.

    So the hostess on Sunday was clueless. We asked if we could sit outside and she said they don't take reservation for outside table. Asked if we could wait and she says no. never going there again.
