proprietor steven fladung greeted us upon entry and allowed us to chose the table we felt most comfortable at. from there, we were handed off to a friendly waitress who was extremely upbeat and enthusiastic throughout the course of our meal. water was always full and had we encountered any issues it was clear that we were in good hands.
loved it...the treats we began with were both stellar, with the more savory than sweet maple bacon doughnut being the best doughnut i think i have ever had.
nice decor, friendly staff, great food and drinks. this meal was definitely a success.
