COVID-2019 Update



As per the request of Public Health Ontario, we have made the difficult decision to close the restaurant as of March 17. As our first priority is keeping our employees & guests safe, we have decided to close the dining room & take-out services. We are hoping this is just a temporary situation and we will update as soon as we know. ​

Take care and stay safe!
