Cozy and good food

This restaurant has a very nice feel to it. It's not too big and the ceilings are low so it makes for a quieter atmosphere. There's a fire place which is nice in the winter.

We were seated quickly in a front window table. Our waitress was there with water and brought coffee to us. The breakfast orders were served within a short time and the portions were of good size.

Friendly staff and a large menu of selections. Prompt service and tasty food! Greek omelet was enough for two meals! Carrot cake pancakes were a bit disappointing-not special enough.
