Relaxed place to catch up over breakfast...but go with an appetite!! The chocolate pancakes were scrumptious the eggs/bacon/mushrooms on sour dough great and good strong coffee. Great prices... $9-$12ish. Both kids and adults enjoyed it...we'll be back.

We visited the shop for Sunday breakfast with 3 other couples. Staff very friendly in taking our orders and delivery food to our outside table. Seating available inside and outside. Good selection of sandwiches, rolls, cakes etc. Coffee was excellent.
