We’ve been visiting Ptown for years and finally stopped in for a meal here. The food was very good, service was excellent and the outdoor seating in the back was a pleasant surprise along with the outdoor music. Nice stop for fun and casual dining.

Had breakfast with my wife this morning and pleasantly surprised. Bohemian/eclectic decor. Friendly staff and food was excellent. Cleanliness was a bit questionable, but nothing we could put our finger on. Potato pancakes were excellent as well as sausage and bacon.

This was a nice place to stop for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the creative combinations on the sandwiches - one girl had grilled cheese with bacon and avocado. They also seem to do interesting things with brussel sprouts but we didn't partake. My...More
