We have gone here many times and have always been pleased. I love the goulash. The brunch offers an extraordinary French toast dish.

Nice small cafe that is very popular with locals despite it catering to the Travelodge guests as it is surrounded by the hotel. We had a large group for breakfast and staff was fast, attentive and very appreciative of our business. From omelettes to over easy eggs, all were well prepared and the bright orange yolks were enjoyed by all.... More

This is a very small, intimate dining establishment next to the Travelodge. I went here for dinner out of convenience since I was staying at the hotel for one night. There was a short wait since I was dining alone and had to wait for a smaller table. The place simply appointed and would be easy to miss if you... More

Small tables (2-4max) that turn fast. Massive slices of brioche for my French toast topped with freshly chopped berries, great coffee, good juice, fluffy and French California omelet. Service was good. Bathroom is mediocre -- only use of need to. Don't be worried about the Travlelodge location. It's great.

I love this place ... wonderful ambience. I've eaten breakfast and dinner here many times. My favorite thing is the grilled corn salad ... it's light and flavorful. I have a lot of allergies, and their offerings are allergy friendly ... olive oil (no soybean oil). I love their lentil soup, too.

Ordered the standard breakfast on the menu. You know, with eggs and bacon coffee etc.I told them I was in a hurry on my way to the danish baker around the corner. Revived my meal rather quick and good and hot. No complaints at all. Just might make this stop a habit at 8:30 am when picking up my order... More

Outstanding Food! Great Service. Restaurant was a little noisy, but that's probably because it was packed...and for good reason. You'll be so busy enjoying the food that you won't need to converse. good value. We will definitely be back.

Thank WaltEast
