Popped in for breakfast. There is a small outside terrace which is small but good for people watching. Food is made with good quality ingredients. Delicious bacon, fresh bagels and the choc chip pancakes were exceptional. Very good value too.

I believe that $12 before tax and tip for omlette is too much for this restaurant. Service was excellent, but that would be the only thing worth.

As usual the service was excellent and the food came up to expectations. This place never fails us and we have been going there for a long time and they have always given great service and an excellent menu.

Great food and plenty of it! My BF and I split the very tasty Chili Relleno omlette and we both finished full. Love it!

Stopped here on our way back to LAX. Had breakfast. It was great. We all enjoyed it. My husband and I both ordered a side of grits. My sister-in-law didn't know what they were. In fact a few weeks after we were back home in West Virginia she text and ask us what to put on grits they were at... More
