Wanted something simple so I ordered poached eggs, bacon and croissant and had a nice breakfast sandwich. Nice atmosphere. Usually get the salad but was still breakfast. Just as good.

Took my parents here for my dad's birthday brunch on a Sunday morning. I came in from Richmond and they from Chesapeake. I arrived early as many reviews say the place is quite busy. I easily got a table in the lovely sunny back room, and waited for my parents to arrive. We had the veggie eggplant "casserole" which was... More

The bar is good and low key and provides a solid selection of beers, wines, and cocktails. The chef is excellent and the food is authentic but not pretentious. It's a great value for... More
