The few times that I actually got into the restaurant, the food was good. However on Sunday morning, it is incredibly crowded and parking is at a premium. It is really no fun to wait 40 minutes for breakfast.

We really enjoyed eating at this restaurant. Large menu with lots of good choices. The coffee was good and the French toast was great. Our group also enjoyed the corn beef hash. This place is a must if you're in the area.

The foo dis good but because they are so busy there could be a long line to get in and the service is a little slow. If you're not in a hurry this is a great breakfast place.

Excellent atmosphere, with lovely inviting dark wood and fireplace. Hosts and servers all very pleasant at each of our visits. The menu is quite extensive (serving both breakfast and lunch - believe they close around 2:30.) with crepe, pancake, egg dishes. The savory crepes and Italian omelet are a favorite. I will admit their pancakes are iffy, one time they... More

Went here for a brunch with some out of town visitors and they treated us very well. The service was very good, the food was good and the prices were reasonable for a party of seven.

Way too many other way better breakfast joint in the area that know how to do breakfast right and do it much faster. Service was way, way too slow for breakfast and no obvious excuse as the place wasn't particularly full or busy. Serving size vs food quality vs price = very poor value. Most of the breakfast competitors give... More

Totally do not get all there at reviews. It only gets the two stars because our server was great. The mouse level was distracting. All of the egg dishes ordered by our group were runny and with little flavor. The added ingredients were not fresh. The salad entrees were likewise unimpressive. You can get a better salad at most area... More
