delicious egg white omelet with kale, pesto, goat cheese and of course bacon. They tried to keep it health and I added the bacon! Terrific service and NYTimes and SAt. WSJ to complete the meal. I could not have asked for any more.

The atmosphere, food and service were excellent. When they found out it was our honeymoon, they brought us champagne to start with. The only criticism is that the white wine could have been better chilled. Otherwise, just great.

I went to lunch a few months ago, but wanted to share our experience. Luckily I was with someone that had been here before, I would have been lost. But once we got there the food was great, the service was great. Overall it was a lovely time. This is the restaurant that Chris turturo is the head chef (think... More

I had the Local Farmer's Market vegetable stir fry with shrimp. It was so delicious that I couldn't believe it was healthy! The next day, I had the buckwheat waffles and they were extraordinary!

The breakfasts are delicious and the setting is quiet. It is nice to sit outside, but on cold mornings the inside is comfy too.

Wonderful healthy options for adults and kids. Expensive but worth it. Good service from Salvatore. The egg white omelette was delicious and the granola was decadent. The ambience was relaxing.

Good service, basic menu. Great chicken sausage for breakfast. Weak coffee. A lovely quiet place for a casual meal.

Our waitress was terrific, she made this a truly special dining experience. The menu was just ok. I had the kale salad, not so great and the turkey sandwich, with was a typical turkey sandwich. My husband had the edamame pot stickers (yummy) and the stir fry (too sweet). I would definitely return for breakfast.

Loved the fresh fruit, tasty omelet dishes, and the cafe latte' was wonderful! The servers were such a pleasure, too.

Wonderful place to grab some breakfast after a morning swim in the pool. I ordered two sides to combine and create a custom dish. The staff were friendly and attentive
