Try the fried avocados! This is a really nice space with live music on certain nights. Super friendly staff!

“Lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Popped in here after driving past the night before. It was perfect for my husband. He was able to watch the Germany v Portugal game whilst we are! I had pancakes the other half had a breakfast burrito. They were both lovely. Service was great too. Ideal pit stop for breakfast before our trip through to yosemite.

“very enjoyable meal, warm and comfortable surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

The two of us had a really good meal here after a long drive. We were tired and were looking for quick and tasty food. The service from booking to payment was professional and attentive and the offerings on the menu interesting and different. We particularly enjoyed the oysters and the sea scallops, which we had as appetizers. All the items we chose were from the happy hour menu and so were $2 or $3 cheaper than equivalent items from the main menu. Selected alcoholic drinks were also offered at happy hour prices. We were able to eat very well without breaking the bank and would happily eat there again anytime.
