Have enjoyed breakfast twice and both were excellent. Eggs Benedict and the egg combo which comes with 2 eggs four pancakes and sausage. I enjoyed the Benedict a little better. The bread and the cinnamon rolls aren’t a bad choice either. Will be back.

The best way to find out is check out their menu or give 'em a ring! Really good food and the ambience is worth your time.
