FAVORITE FOOD/ PRICE
The margherita flatbread ($6) topped with a touch of red wine vinaigrette and served with a side salad was certainly an optimal choice. The por- tions of the flatbread are generous, made up of four large pieces that can satisfy a hearty appetite. The key lime pie ($5.50) was the chosen dessert, creamy with just the right tang of lime made it the perfect after dinner choice accompanied by a green tea latte, which is by far an unusual but delicious experience.
Because the food is prep a re d o n s i t e i n a s mal l kitchen space, some dishes can take a while to be served, but nothing unreasonable.
It is generally a quiet place, the noise only increasing when there is a live band or performance on scheduled nights.
Families are certainly welcome. Although there is no children’s menu, the sandwiches and desser ts c an certainly suit the tastes of younger diners.
