|Even signage and font can be inspiring.|
|Loved this long booth and the art reminded me of fleur-de-lis.|
|Cozy and cute.|
|I was obsessed with these red chairs!!! Amazing pop of colour.|
|Etched into the wall...sort of like cave men drawings.|
|Val and I both had the soup to start...a buttenut squash with a North African Spice blend YUM!|
