The meals were generous, tasty and delicious. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing and the music playlist was great to sing along with. The waitress spoke very good English and was polite and pleasant. Definitely like to come back again.

Very good service and cozy place with a warm interior. Breakfast buffet was fairly priced and pretty good (the basics: eggs, bacon, fruit,...).

For breakfast I had an omelette with sausage and bacon, and washed it down with a few mimosas which set me up... More
