Great place for breakfast. Three people in our group and everyone was thrilled with their food. Poached eggs on english muffins with all different things on top. Swiss cheese and spinach was a favorite for us.

We had a delightful breakfast at Sinclair's this morning. After being met with charming decor and relaxed atmosphere, we enjoyed oat spiced pancakes with real maple syrup. Varied menu, good prices, yummy food. Worth a repeat.
