went with a friend today, was not disappointed. Service was good and we had different omelets.. Tried the Italian omelet, delicious with Irish soda bread on the side. I will definitely come back again..

“Not only for Tea Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Pretty Little tearoom, with a feel like Ireland.
List of custom blended teas is impressive. The brown bread & soda bread is wonderful-
They make a home-made corn beef hash like no other - moist meat large chunks of potatoes & onions, green peppers if you like them. This can be had all day long, not just for breakfast. Other great offerings include the light airy pancakes, hand formed burgers, & both white & sweet potato fries.
On the weekends they have music for your listening enjoyment.

“Feels like you are in Ireland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

What a fun local spot for breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner. This friendly, funky place serves delicious food. I especially like the bistro salad for lunch and the Danish omelet at breakfast. Families are welcome and Sunday's can be busy. Friday nights have Irish music which can also be quite crowded - so get there early and have a great time.

“Cute eclectic place with yummy lunch fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This neighborhood cafe has a wonderful variety of items on their menu from soups, sandwiches, huge salads, wraps and paninis to omelets, pancakes and french toast. I really liek the eclectic ambiance and have enjoyed everything I've eaten there- turkey sandwich on rye, egg salad sandwich on wheat, tuna salad sandwich on wheat. I recommend their balsamic dressing too- so good. It's a lovely chill place to go to catch up with friends and family during the day.

“very good local Irish Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Very good Irish breakfast entrees, all the classics like Irish bacon, black and white pudding, salmon, soda bread etc. I've had the in-house made corned beef - absolutely delicious; big diced pieces of corned beef, peppers, potato and onion like you've never seen before and large portions. The omelets are large also. They get their bread made fresh daily from the bakery down the block. The rest of the menu is more American, salads, paninis, wraps, etc. Went last week at the height of lunchtime and only 1 waitress on. While she was very pleasant it was hard to get her attention for anything. Cute Irish artifacts hang around, the original teapot that the tea salesman brought to the USA is there, there is a story behind it, hence the name of the place. Live music on the weekends.
