Everything is homemade...the bread, the jam, and all of the breakfast items. It is a typical healthy, but North American style breakfast. Good coffee! If that's what you have a hankering for, this might be your place.

This place is one of the few that offer some healthier options for breakfast. Everything was really delicious and really affordable. Coffee was very good and we really enjoyed the home-made bread and jams.

We had breakfast here and I felt a little underwhelmed after reading so many great reviews. I had the Mexican, which was pretty basic, and the bread was a little dense, but the jams were good. The juice was amazing and the coffee was good.

I think this place may have the best ham & cheese omelets on the island. They are large and you get a lot of ham and cheese in them. The meal comes with toast and jams. I keep wanting to try the strudel, but haven't...More
