    The space is beautiful! A rustic, elegance to the small dining room. The tables were dotted with fresh flowers from a local garden and there is a bar area where the owner was sitting on his laptop when we were there. The lunch menu was very limited the day we were there, last Tues. The water was flavored with cucmber and mint which was nice. I had the Pulled Pork sandwich which was OK, but nothing special. It came with Duck Fat fries which were pretty ordinary and I asked for a side of Aioli to go with them. Service was friendly and the wine list was very, very limited. I think they had only been open for a week.

    We would like to return for dinner next time after things are more established. :)

      Do they have outdoor seating?

        To answer my own question, they don't have outdoor seating right now but looks like they will in the future. Had lunch today and also thought the pulled pork was OK (it needed a little something to give it some zing) but the skirt steak sandwich was delicious and we also liked their kabocha squash cake with orange cardamom ice cream
