Interaction with guests
We respond to our guests' need for interaction. If they want to engage, we're happy to talk. But if guests want to be left alone, we're okay with that, too. We live in the basement so we’re always available if needed. We welcome people at later hours but prefer if you arrive between 4pm and 6pm and ring the doorbell for immediate service.
