Great breakfast place for the area. The atmosphere is relaxing and pleasant. Service was very good and the food is delicious. It's also plentiful. My husband and I split one meal and it was more than enough. Highly recommend going.

I went here with a friend who had eaten here once and she was so happy to share her great experience with me. Well, it just started off badly. The restaurant was NOT busy. The hostess sat us at a very small table and we asked if we could have a bigger table. All the other diners were in booths... More

Have been here several time and never been disappointed by the food or service. Try one of the French Toast specialties.

Was fairly disappointed. Food took a long time, service was not up to par. Had been for breakfast and enjoyed it, but this lunch wasn't anything to recommend sad to say.

Pretty good cafe benedict, poached eggs on croissant with shaved ham, topped with hollandaise. I personally would have liked more seasoning and the hashbrowns were ok.

The menu was so huge. I always have a hard time choosing. Not a bad thing. Love the fireplace and the atmosphere. The servers are friendly. It's a great place to meet for breakfast with your friends. Can't go wrong with this place.

Nice atmosphere, very clean place but a little loud since it is all open. Went with my wife and it is a good thing I like sitting next to her and not across from her because I am not sure she could have heard me in conversation. I ordered one of the omelettes and it was more of a frittata.... More
