Last year the kitchen had some difficulty with a sudden surge of hungry Estonians all showing up at the same time. The difficulty lay in what we had originally estimated to be @ 70 people turned into 100. This year they will have a delicious shortened menu that should satisfy all palates and will be ramped up for quicker service.
It would be strongly recommended that reservations be made for tables if you already have a group in mind. Reservations can be either made by phone 705-446-9922 or e-mailed to the attention of Cori at .
