We stayed in an apartment above the Hog's Breath and found it very convenient to come down and grab dessert after having a meal in house. Some of the desserts whilst all of them are not cheap are great

Quick efficient service and large portions. Good place for families and group socializing with wooden tables and booths. Fairly wide menu options and selection of beverages. Enjoyed a great burger with melted Brie and sliced beets along with a refreshing grapefruit mojito.
