Drinks were great, food was incredible and the staff were nice and friendly. I asked for a drink that had a grape garnish and she said they didn't have the garnish, so I said no problem and said the drink is okay without but I couldn't order it that way, I had to get a different drink which was disappointing but understandable ❤️

Went in and was seated straight away. I had the vegetarian nachos and they were the nicest nachos I've ever had before and I would go back just for them. The staff were lovely and helpful and the price was very reasonable for the quality and size of the portions.
