We had a great breakfast there this morning. Strawberries with a waffle that wasn’t sweeten, eggs, grill cheese sandwich and the vegan jackfruit all was excellent! It is crowded so go early!

This restaurant was highly recommended to us but we found it to be fair. Not bad, not good. We had the Eggs Benedict and some sort of sandwich. However, I hear the waffle is life changing.

I believe they could as they have a beautiful patio area with a fountain in the back as well as seating inside. However, as the prior person stated they would need to know in advance.
