Great Breakfast itself, but our waitress seemed too busy. We both felt like she cared less we were there. Came in, took our drinks then disappeared for 10 minutes. Had to wave over another waiter (who he seemed to have it together) and ask him to grab her so we could order. Doesn't take 10 minutes to decide what we... More

It was fresh. Tried to order their signature “bacon infused Bloody Mary,” but it was clear that our waiter was... More

Very neat place to visit. Outside storefront looks as though it's the original front from 100+ years ago. Friendly staff and service, ordered 4 sandwiches and it took longer to receive food than it should have.
