They also have a lot of different wines by the glass, which is perfect if you’re with someone who doesn’t know what they like. For food, there’s your standard cheese selection, and some satisfying small plates. Overall, this place is perfect for a cozy, casual glass of wine, and it will feel like a nice escape. Unless you live in a cabin.
