Had breakfast on a Saturday around 9:45am. Seated right away but it was busy and when we left, there was a line up to get in. The blueberry pancakes were very good as well as the corned beef egg plate. I liked the coffee.

I didn't see any pets in the restaurant when we were there, but out of consideration of other patrons and their possible allergies to pets, I would think that if they were allowed, it would only be on the patio.

I'm not sure but I don't think so. You won't be waiting too long if you have to wait. We've never had to wait for a table though.

No, It probably sets about 100 , maybe a few more. The lines are always long but the service is great and the wait not bad. more seating outside in nice weather. BB
