Great place for breakfast, and every meal comes with a hug! Tim is a young man with Down Syndrome who owns this well-run and friendly restaurant! Good food and great people. What a model he provides for young people with disabilities!

Great tasty lunch, served by Kevin, who was friendly and attentive. The only disappointment was that the wi-fi isn't for customers (and Tim was away so no hug!)

Really good food and also Tim greet us at the entrance. Staff was really nice and the food was surprisingly really good. There is a lot of memorabilia about Tim and his trips, he even stay with us about 5 mins to talk about his Caribbean trip.
