“So cozy! Fantastic wine selection, very good beer selection too. The room in the back has two gas stoves to provide ambience and several couches and chairs in addition to the tables. Inside is darker and more private feeling. The menu is good for sure, with more selections for small plates. But you come to Conundrum for atmosphere and drinks.”
