We went here after a disappointing breakfast experience at a nearby restaurant. This was so much better. Excellent coffee, well presented and good tasting food and excellent service. We had our breakfast there for the rest of our stay.

Easily walkable from the Embassy Suites, the Executive offered something for everyone after a long day of sightseeing. Our meals were tasty (especially the fries - both regular and sweet potato!) and the service was very friendly. We would return.
