    Huge bottles of homemade ketchup that tastes like marinara on every table and no Heinz in sight? No, thank you.

    Cash only, but there's an ATM on premises. Also a fire pit if you're waiting outside — which you are because there's no room to wait inside.

    The pancakes are made by leprechauns; it's the only explanation for how good they are. Also, the chef said so.
