We ate breakfast here as a family and it was satisfactory. Ordered standard fare eggs Benedict. I enjoyed it but the family didn't so much. Service was slow.

We arrived at a not so busy breakfast time in the day. There were 3 staff serving and 7 tables occupied. It took 25 minutes to get our coffee and place... More

We were four adults going for a late light dinner. They sit pitas and hummus on the table for you to snack on while you wait for your food.

It was not busy so decided to eat outside on a Friday. They forgot about us, but finally took our order. A couple came after us and sat at another table outside and they were attended to right away. They got their order and finished eating while we were still waiting. Finally the waiter came out and apologized and said... More
