Amazing danish

The most amazing sweet rolls. One serves at least two people. The service is the fastest I have ever had in a restaurant with serve staff.

We went a family of 6 persons. Friendly staff, and the pastas was perfectly cooked. We would certainly go there again. The hummus for starter was pretty ordinary.

The hotel staff recommended we go to CH. Food is wonderful and the desserts made fresh every day are incredible. We had the brisket special and it was delicious. The cornbread muffin is like dessert all by itself. Liked this place so much we went there for breakfast twice, dinner once and then just for dessert evening during our stay... More

This place was recommended to us by the hotel desk clerk and he was spot on! Hubby and I split an appetizer and an entrée and were stuffed. It was so good, we stuffed ourselves silly, but we didn't have room for the delicious sounding desserts. Our waitress was awesome and knew just how often to come by and check... More

The atmosphere and food here is really good and the portions good sized, and the service was excellent and honest (the waitress recommended the "light" portion, but I didn't get it, but let's just say I should have). I have no issue with that and would gladly go here again, but the "extras" can really add up quickly. I had... More

Had breakfast here, lot of items on the menu, and the portions were big. Nothing fancy, service was good, food was good. Prices were a bit on the high side, but it was the tourist season.

As a local we eat there a couple times a month. Good food, excellent service, and fair prices make for a great place to eat. I am rarely hungry enough for dessert but I order some anyway to take home for later.
