As locals we decided to give this place a try on a Saturday morning. We got there around 10AM and immediately after walking in were very uncomfortable. There were two other tables with customers besides ourselves. The guy who was running the place was by himself both serving and cooking, so when the service was a little slow we gave him a pass. But when we needed to get our own silverware, coffee and coffee mugs after realizing we weren't getting them ten minutes after we ordered, that was a little strange. Besides the weird service the atmosphere of the dining room gave me an overall creepy, uncomfortable vibe. The way the room was set up and the fact that you could smell it used to be a basement, along with the grandmother-like/modern/random decor made it a very quiet meal. I have to admit that the food we ate was good, although pricey at over twenty dollars for two simple breakfasts and two coffees. The weirdest part though was when the couple next to our table decided to start serving a party that just walked in, since the guy was absent, and then the guy came out of the kitchen to say "I am but your humble servant," multiple times. Wait, what? Overall the food was good and if you can get past the weird atmosphere and extreme lack of service, go for it. I for one will not be returning anytime soon.
