I'm afraid we have not sampled a lot of their menu because we just can't get past the Corned Beef Hash. It is fabulous!

Enjoyed breakfast with family, including 2 children. The selection was perfect for all tastes and quality of the food was excellent. We had waffles, hash browns(not out of a can), scrambled eggs and toast. Everyone was happy!!
