Delightful find on the "Street of Eats." We chose a restaurant at random and were not disappointed. Had the salmon and steamed buns with pork. Both, especially the latter, very good. Excellent wait staff.

Our dining menu is designed to share, a combination of carefully selected ingredients that allow a series of tastes to be passed around and enjoyed together. Our food is fresh, innovative, flavoursome and made from scratch. The beverage menu showcases inspired selections of local craft beer, wine by the glass and seasonally crafted cocktails made with our own syrups, fresh fruit and herbs. Simply put, Atticus Finch is a great place to gather with friends and enjoy the best pours and plates in town. Drink with us, Dine with us, Share with us.
