Of course my chic best friend took me here on a Saturday afternoon. The atmosphere was adorable- people on a beautiful patio, mothers and daughters lunching on striped colorful couches, and groups of people dispersed at the bar. I will say that the sitting arrangement was a bit crowded, but kind of fun to sit close to others over tea. I had a glass of Pinot Gris and the Kale Caesar salad with chicken. (Pictured above by Happy Bites) This was very good. The chicken was roasted, a sourdough toast lay over the kale, and the pre tossed ceasar had an incredible dressing topped with a poached egg. It was the perfect size and packed with a lot of flavor.
Best Bite- the House Marinated Olives and the Bacon wrapped Dates with Blue Cheese
