We took our 7 year old granddaughter for a birthday treat, and were struck by unusually inattentive, slow service. If we wouldn't have had better experiences in the past, the level of service wouldn't draw us back.

Some of us had breakfast items, and others had burgers. Everything was well prepared and tasty. The ham and cheese scone was delicious, and just enough for a light meal. The server was very nice and helpful.
