    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.
