Given the 4 star rating, we decided to give this breakfast place a try, as it is one of the earliest ones opened in town. However, the food was below average, service was poor and quite rude. We had ordered a vegetarian omelette, but were...More

Manager was pretty rude. Food was average along with the service. Gave the standard feel of wanting you to leave as quickly as possible.

The Rue Peel location was delicious and attractive. Juices/smoothies and Benedicts were fantastic! I had the Billy Goat with salmon, goat cheese, spinach, and hollandaise.
