Orange cranberry scones are to die for! This little gem compares to some of the finest brunch places I have visited in the country. Very top-notch.

Visited 2 days in a row. Hollandaise sauce was really great. Lemony and not oppressively heavy, and plentiful. The shaved ham in the Benedict was yummy. (Caveat: this is not the place for an espresso. Skip the specialty coffee and go next door to The...More

We went to this simple breakfast/lunch restaurant to check it out. Glad we did. Great breakfast. Inexpensive, but a goodly amount of tasteful food. My wife loved their blueberry muffin, fresh made and warm. Lots of choices on the menu.

The breakfast menu is amazing. Everything from eggs Benedict to biscuits and gravy. Their biscuits are about 6" across, a meal in itself, and always fresh baked. The staff is always friendly and willing to make adjustments for personal preferences.
