Hours of Operation change - though the location is still on Front St.:
We open around 10 AM Mon-Saturday, Noon on Sundays
We close between 6 PM and 8 PM depending on traffic.
Unfortunately the hours to the left were hard-coded into our site 6 years ago and we can’t change them. But they are not accurate. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We hope to see you soon!
