I went here with a friend last week, we wanted to catch up after some time. she lives in the area and as she has a duty for me only tall people can do (i.e. changing the kitchen light bulb), this was just the perfect spot to chitchat for a bit.

they have a huge beer menu. even though I am German, I do not like beer too much, hence I go for cider a lot of times. they had a very delicious black cherry cider, unfortunately I do not remember the brand – which gives me a reason to go back.

we felt a little hungry, so we ordered some little things. I like the atmosphere there, it’s very casual. we also came quite early, maybe around 5pm, so it was still empty.

there is no hostess, you just sit wherever you like and it’s self-service. they have quite a variety of sandwiches, caren chose the fried oyster&bacon  IMG_0812 (1024x970)
and I decided on the duck sliders. we also shared the naked thai calamari which were delicious – very thin batter and mixed with that sweet chili sauce. I might a have a new favorite version now.
