Fully decorated with garlands, lights and a tree that neary touches the balcony, with packages of food and toys that customers can bring and place under the tree for the needy, which we distribute just before Christmas, and an entrance also decorated for the Holidays, can't help but get one in the Holiday Mood.

Topped off with a menu of Christmas favorites and an uplifting production which will leave all feeling up and good about themselves , relatives and friends.
