Wonderful atmosphere with the friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast menu. Eggs benedict and omelet were very tasty and speedy to arrive at our table. The banter between staff is a huge plus in starting your day on the right note.

I had breakfast at this place and was very disappointed. Decided to go back for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. I would recommend it for lunch and dinner but not for breakfast.
