I was uncertain about this place, on the edge of old port, and my family was particularly skeptical as we walked up because it doesn't look like much from the outside. In contrast, the interior is very welcoming - wood tables, comfortable spacing, original art on the walls. We went on a Saturday at 11am and it was half-full, filling as noon approached with people who seem like regulars (greeting staff, etc). Prices were $6-10 (granola to french toast).
Orange juice was deliciously fresh-squeezed and a big hit (with my wife and kids "tasting" half of it). Coffee (organic, fair trade) was served in a "bottomless", distinctive, easy-to-handle mugs (a nice touch).
The quality of the food was outstanding, but be warned: if you order the out-of-this-world french toast, it'll take 20-30 min. Breads were flavorful and locally-made, including a dense multi-grain that's as dark as pumpernickel. The omelettes were delicious, and the sweet potatoes added interest to the home fries.
The service was just right, attentive to refills without being intrusive.
