Had early morning breakfast here on recent trip and once we were seated it did not take long for food to arrive. It felt a bit strange drinking water out of a jam jar equivalent but became easy. Excellent selection of food and it was...More

We came here for breakfast around 9:30 on a Sunday afternoon. We would have ad a wait for a table inside, but were seated immediately outside. My wife’s scrambled eggs arrived on a small plate with nothing but dry toast to accompany. My son’s breakfast...More
