The personnel was excellent and extremely friendly !!! They went out of their way to make you feel friendly !!! But one serving of Eggs Benedict for 40$ is a little bit overpriced !!! The decor did not really offer anything special !!

We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. We had eggs, fruit, pancakes, and egg white omelette. Friendly and personable service. Lots of shops to visit in the neighborhood. Will definitely return.
