We enjoyed an early morning breakfast and our experience was great! The waiters was friendly and the food was awesome, i enjoyed the french bread with banana, bacon and caramel suryp - something different from the normal choices! Prices for breakfast are very reasonable!

Good ambiance but the food wasn't that great. My friend enjoyed the sushi but my salad was ok. Still a good handout spot for those long afternoon catch-up sessions.
