Bar
“We usually go for one of their wood-fired pizzas per person (keeps the bill down and we feel it is one of their best items). Food is good but not outstanding; but a great place to bring a date due to the romantic atmosphere.”

“Open only until noon, a perfect breakfast spot. A local favorite due to their great prices, generous portions and pleasant service. A real local favorite. A place where friends meet for a cup of coffer or full breakfast or brunch. Part of Spring Lake for a long time. If you like a nice, clean, no frills breakfast place - this is it!”
