Went here for breakfast with my fam and expected to be blown away given the reviews. We weren't blown away..I mean it was good but not shoot fireworks good. Eggs Benedict was above average. Iced coffee didn't even have simple syrup or flavors to offer. The lady looked at me like I had 3 heads when I asked about simple... More

We visited with a party of 6 adults and 3 young children. They were busy, but fast moving. We just barely fit in their largest booth, but they did their best to accommodate us. Service was good and food was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Day one I had the Black Dog, an omelet with fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers and basil pesto for $8.95, including toast and home fries. It was delicious, the fries not at all greasy. Day two I had The Parmesan,... More
