This place is great! Locally sourced, delicious ingredients, beautifully cooked!
In my hometown, when I want a burger, I make it myself (or I decide it's not worth the bother, quite often!) - mainly because I like knowing where the meat came from (in my case, approximately 3 miles from my house). Pretty damn nice.
What's nice about Shona is being able to trust a local food establishment to consistently provide the best quality possible in a way that keeps the community sound and whole. I don't wave to the cows I end up eating at Shona (they're not on my commute), but I wave at the farmer who raises them when we pass! (He thinks I'm a little nutso :)
Going to Shona is such a treat! They do everything right, are super nice folks, and don't take things too seriously - just seriously enough to be awesome :)
I've had great apps here, nibbles from the entrees of others are also very good. The Calamari Flatbread is really fun and different. Heard good things about the fish & chips. Creme brulee was perfect. Switchback and Wolavers IPA on tap, great selection of local spirits.
This place is new, and still working through some operational things I think. The food & drink are great.
Lots of stuff to poke through, which is fun. One man's junk is another man's treasure - this is that kind of place. The owner is very friendly.
Make sure that everything you buy makes it home with you. There's a lot of clutter by the register (as well as everywhere else) so you'll have to extricate anything that gets tangled up!
Unfortunately, this really was the pits. The lady working wasn't unfriendly, but the food was atrocious and way overpriced for what it is. I had read reviews before going and thought, "oh, surely, it's not that bad!"
It is. It really is. Sad, bad Mexican food.
This just opened! I've been driving quite a ways for massages (recently had major surgery) so having something in town is great, and the massage I got was wonderful! It is run by a Chinese family who live here in town - there is a bit of a language barrier, but there is a translation device, which helps!
I guess it's a bit of an unfair review, as I haven't had the chance to eat here, but that's kind of the issue. Arrived just after 8 on a Saturday night, sat outside, no one came. The restaurant wasn't very busy & we asked if sitting outside would be ok, they said yes...but oh well. We were trying to catch a movie, so after waiting for 10 minutes for menus, it was destined to be a fast food night. It says they're open til 9, does the kitchen close at 8?
I had to pick up a prescription for my mom, who just had both knees replaced. The scrip didn't get called in until 5:45 (Pete's closes at 6). Not only did Pete call me to let me know the scrip had arrived, he got it ready for me, offered to stay open until I could get there, and was utterly fantastic, professional and kind.
Salmon sashimi was good, eel and avocado roll ditto. Chicken yakitori was not so great (the sauce was weird and the chicken didn't have great flavor). The miso soup was a bit sweet for my taste, but I love love love the spinach in it, and the tofu was delicious. Friends ordered sushi and Korean food and seemed happy. Lovely, patient server.
Great little deli with good coffee even at 3 in the afternoon, and the best Italian combo sub I've had in years - I got it with cabbage instead of lettuce and a little Italian dressing, super good and super cheap!
While the shopping here was fun (and I found a lot of great stuff at pretty good prices), the service was incredibly offputting, rudeness and condescension to the max. I guess I should have dressed up to go shopping to avoid being profiled by the really unpleasant women who worked here - they were snooty and insulting. Also, these same employees were really bad at organizing the fitting rooms, and got all pissy when one put me in a changing room that the other had thought she'd reserved for someone else. Work together, ladies. Also, snobbiness should have no place at a second-hand store, no matter how good the labels on the clothes.
"Cheap, & enthusiastic!"
